Help- large garden opportunity on slope- what to do
So I'm totally new to this forum and semi-new to gardening. I've gathered a few families together to undertake creating a decent sized garden plot. Probably about 60ft by 100ft.
I've done some small time backyard gardening with a fair bit of success, but never anything of this scale or magnitude. I was hoping to find somewhere an easy 1, 2, 3, etc step guide to starting and effectively farming a small piece of land like this, but I've been coming up empty handed.
In addition to some basic steps, part of my issue lies in the slope- parts are at a 1% to 5% at the top of the lot.
Do I simply work to level this off? Create terraces (sounds like a lot of work and $), deal with the slope and erosion issues by simply planting accordingly.
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
