If I use douglas fir boards for a raised bed, can I pre treat them with Thompson water seal or seal them to prevent any rotting without chemicals that can leach in the ground?

Thompson's Water Seal will work, or you could use good old fashioned Linseed oil. Either will help keep the wood from rotting. Good luck with your garden!
