Hi Chris Hibbard here from Squirrel Hill Community Garden in
Philadelphia. I would like to observe that measuring a gardens success
by the number of participants is only measuring a piece of the pie.
Many thriving gardens are smallish 20-30. Longetivity its one thing to
start a garden and have it look great in the first two years its quite
another to grow the garden. Deal with changing demographics changing
allocations of space, mature plantings, the need to rebuild/ rethink
structural parts of the garden. and keep gardening for 15, 20 years.
Now thats a measure of a successful garden.
