4) Securing the walls from inside and outside while setting up
As the concrete walls are heavy and long you should do this together with another person.

5) Filling with compostable biomass
You can fill your raised bed with a mix of organic compostable biomass. This could be shredded leaves or grass clippings for instance. In-between you can put a layer of sticks so that the air can circulate better. On top you should put a good soil mixture.
