This listserve is a great place for you to
draw from a wide breadth of knowledge for community gardening. Many here are
involved in different aspects of community gardening. Some specialize in school
gardening. Some work with seniors. Some have beautiful gardens in downtown
urban cities, adding to the beauty of downtown. There are thousands of
community gardens in the country and tens of thousands of gardeners.
With that said it would help to know some
more information about
The purpose of your garden---the target
audience (youth adults, seniors, handicap etc…)
The size of the garden
The goal you want to achieve by building
How much corporate, municipal, school and
other help you have
What type of funding you have as far as
grant or grass root fundraising
What types of crops you are looking to
If you can let us know what you are
looking at building, I am sure you will find people who have done, or are doing,
the very same things and can give great advice as far as what to do and what to

Hello to all!
We are starting a community vegetable garden as part of a
nutrition awareness and community building project. We are located on the
campus of a university in the South Florida area.
I would be honored if any of you are willing to share advice about starting,
particularly gathering the neighborhood to us. Also, anyone who lives in this
area and is interested in a plot is welcome to contact me. Looking forward to
learning so much from all of you!
