 Hi friends,
I have been somewhat remiss in posting but I hope this makes amends.
This open source software is free and may have some use for many of you. 
To find out more about the Oklahoma Food Cooperative please check out this link.
Other coops based on this experiment are starting up in Kansas, Nebraska, Texas and Arkansas.  There is a lot of space for community gardens here.  Think self funding.
All the best,
John Herndon
Village Green Community Garden
Norman, Oklahoma

___Feedback and Suggestions___
Yes, this form could be better. If you streamline this form, feel free to 
share in the spirit of open source. We would have streamlined it more, 
putting all variables in a list for easier editing, and several other 
things, but in the interest of not delaying the distribution of this 
information any longer, we opted to post it as is.
