I live in Palm Beach County, Florida and none of the community gardens
around here are locked either. Most have waist high wooden fences around
them with a simple wooden gate that anyone can enter. So far the only
problems that I have heard about are folks having some tomatoes or
watermelons stolen and one time someone ripped all the notices off a
bulletin board. I think one thing that works for us is there's nothing in
our gardens to attract others- just the plants themselves. There are no
benches, decorations or storage sheds. On designated work days, tools are
brought in by the county employees and are taken back at the end of the day.
The rest of the time it's up to the plot holders to bring their own tools.
Since vegetable gardening isn't popular around here, I guess not to many
folks care what we're growing and the places get left alone.
This life is a test... had it been a real life you would
have received instuctions on where to go and what to do.
