As most of us know, keeping a community garden vital, accessible and
appreciated by the community around it after the first 5 years takes work: it's like
being in a long running floating poker game or a marriage.
This year, the Clinton Community Garden <A
HREF="http://www.clintoncommunitygarden.org/">Clinton Community Garden</A> hits the 25 year mark, and boy has
it been a bumpy ride! Liz Christy downtown is about 30 years old, and was
finally saved by the NYC Garden Settlement <A
HREF="http://www.lizchristygarden.org/">Liz Christy Garden</A> ; the Eagle Heights Community Garden in Madison
Wisconsin is 41 years old ( founded in 1962) <A
HREF="http://www.sit.wisc.edu/~ehgarden/">Eagle Heights Community Garden</A> .
I don't know if we should put founding dates on the garden links page or
create a page linked to the gardens with the gardens listed by age (in this case
age before beauty). It's wild to see that we have community gardens that are 60
- 61 years of age.
I really hope we hear of more.

Thank you for the encouragement. As near as anyone can tell, the Fenway
Victory Gardens in Boston are the only continually operated community
gardens older than Dowling Community Garden in Minneapolis. Older by a
year. I wonder if list members are aware of other community gardens
from this era that are still in operation.
