Small fundraising projects for community gardens

We are in the process of putting together a tip sheet on fundraising
projects for individual community gardens (gardens at schools, shelters,
neighborhood associations, etc.).  We started to brainstorm projects such as
selling unique produce at a farmer's market or selling cut flowers.  We
thought about crafts made from the garden but weren't sure what type of
crafts might sell well.  We also researched what perennial fruit crops might
be fairly easy to maintain and easy to sell.  Is there anything we should
caution groups about such as strict health codes for making and selling

Any thoughts on any of the above ideas?
