Thanks for that feedback Adam. All good points to their silly argument.

 Re 510(c)(3) - either really works, because I've seen both used for community 
gardens. With this, I would suggest that you contact your local office of the 
Trust for Public Land for advice on how to best set yourself up. 
 
The guys at the City of Sunnyvale haven't gotten it with the automatic turnover 
of garden beds to :give everyone" a chance to garden. Because most folk, to be 
honest, really don't want to garden. And if you set up a "public service," 
component to your community garden, like a viewing garden, or a "row for the 
hungry," to supply a local food bank/soup kitchen, the folks who like the 
"idea," of gardening will dissapear almost magically in favor of hard core 
gardeners who will want to put down roots. 
 
Your guys at City Hall really need to talk to the garden program folks in 
Portland - or get the idea that gardening permits are similar to getting permits 
to golf or play tennis on your city's courts. Nothing more, nothing less. 
 
Best wishes,

Friends,
 
Can those of you who have created a non-profit to build your community gardens 
tell me what type of 501c3 you have created (Public Charity vs. Private 
Foundation or some other)?
 
Also, are there any community gardens that limit the length of time a garden bed 

is leased to one owner? The City of Sunnyvale is at the moment arguing that we 
should have automatic turnover of garden beds to give "everyone" a chance to 
garden. I say allow attrition to take care of this and if there is more demand 
then beds than all the more reason to create another community garden location.
 
Thank you,
 
Josh Salans
