I am just getting started and planned on creating a flower garden in a large
empty lot next to my place of business in a low income area. After doing
some research I have realized I would like to recruit members of the
community to garden their own plots of land...a true community garden where
people come together. My first question is am I too late to get this going
this year? I have volunteers to clean the lot and am putting up flyers
tomorrow in the community for interest. I am working with the hort. society
here but they can't meet with me until next week. I am writing up a
solicitation letter for donations to take to Home Depot, Lowes, etc. I also
have plans to let my local and state officials know about the project and
ask for support. Any ideas for other things I should be taking care of?
Advice? I feel a sense of urgency b/c it is already March and I am trying
to do as much research as I can...but I feel like I'm short on time. Thanks
for any help. Karen Lienau Wilmington, DE
