STX: Where can I get cedar boards, cut to size, for a raised bed garden? I need to keep it cheap too.

Can't help you with boards but if you want really inexpensive raised beds, old tires are the bomb!

I don't know about cheap but UDL on Northside Rd has lumber. Of course there is HD might have something.

In the states I just use old tree trunks and replace them every few years. Usually from dead pine trees. Always seem to find some around the property, cheap too. Coconut tree trunks (straight) would work fine if you could find them.
