In addition to writing to the listserve, you should also go to the ACGA website- American Community Gardening Association - which has several pages of "invented wheels," i.e., 25 years of community garden practice and experience.

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 etcâ)
The size of the garden
The goal you want to achieve by building the garden
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 grow
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 avoid.
