Hi, This is Leslie from Portland Community Gardens. A number of
organizations could be involved in organizing a community garden. Here is a
list that you could use to brain storm from, for local people:
	City or County Parks departments
	Hunger-related agencies, such as food banks
	Community centers, youth groups
	Service groups, such as Rotary, Kiwanis
	Religious organizations (there are many who do this for their social
justice work)
	Manager of the apartments nearby
	Community Development Corporations
	Land trusts (could be an environmental one nearby)
	Colleges: admin, students, staff
	Neighborhood associations
	Garden groups or clubs
	Schools, public and private
	AmeriCorps/vista(have them find an on-going sponsor)
	Windsurfer association (particular to Hood River, for those of you
					wondering)
	Columbia Gorge Organics ( a great business! for all to know)

I know of a small piece of land, adjacent to a large group of apartments,
that could be made into a very nice garden plot for the nearby residents.
Though I can be instrumental in securing the use of the land, I don't have
the time myself to organize the neighbors into the gardening effort. Is
there anyone reading this list who'd like to coordinate this project? Or any
suggestions on making it happen?
