I am curious to know who owns the
land on which most community gardens operate. I ask because the land on
which our community garden sits is privately owned and the owner is interested
in selling. Our local nature association is thinking about trying to
purhase the land through a grant, but the price is quite high.
I would give me a better sense of
what our options are if I knew how other community gardens operate with regard
to land ownership. I realize that responders can only reply about their
own community garden ownership, but that would be helpful.
