A definition: A community garden is a public garden created by a few 
gardeners for the used and enjoyment of the entire community.  

When you're gardening on the people's land, it ain't your private paradise. 
Mr. Wilsons may garden in the community garden, but he has to learn to love 
Dennis the Menace. 

There is no "private," community gardening, though lots of gardeners get in 
trouble saying "my," instead of ours. 

Love ya all  - off to WHYY to record a " You Bet Your Garden," with Mike 
McGrath today.
