>Good morning.   I am looking for information to start a community garden
>and I figured your association would be the first place to start.   Let me
>give you the quick background info and then I guess we can take it from
>there.  I live in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn which geographically is 8
>miles from NYC and on the edge of the second most popular area in
>Brooklyn, Park Slope.  The area in which the lot is situated is on a block
>which consists of brownstone buildings and one apartment building directly
>next to the lot.  This building has approximately six to eight floors.  I
>currently bought a condo in a brownstone about 6 buildings down from this
>lot about 6 months ago and we currently reside there.   Some info about
>the lot.  It is a very big lot that has been empty for a number of years
>now.  The man who currently owns the lot has been holding out until he
>gets the asking price for the lot which is extremely expensive ($825K)
>that is the first hurdle of this project.  I am currently unaware as to
>how big the lot is but to get a feeling on your end it is longer than it
>is wide.  To take an estimated guess right now I would say that it is 6000
>square feet but I am taking a complete guess.   Anyway, I am writing to
>you today to get some info on Community Gardens.  How do I start one?  How
>can I raise the $825K to buy the property?  How do I find out in my
>community if I can even do this??  I have so many questions but this is
>the way to start I guess.   Please let me know any info you can give me. 
>If I can speak to one of you that would be great or email me back with
>some info!   Thank you in advance!   -Heather Curatolo 214 Park Place #2
