Since this is for a community garden, make it a group process. If the group creates the rules, the group is more likely to follow them. Have "rounds" where everyone gets to share their perspectives without interruption, then draft, then let it sit for a week. Come back together and discuss what you all came up with.
Make sure there are very clear agreements and commitments for maintaining the common spaces!
And beware of punitive attitudes and language; rather, write "rules" that guide and inspire.
Above all, keep it fun.

We are starting up a community garden in our area and I am in charge of writing the rules and regulations.  Do you have some samples that I can use to get me started?
