Good Morning Connie!
In addition to Lisa Vandyke's excellent advice, I'd like to add that parents
need to be informed that gardens, while peaceful and beautiful are not always
safe, especially if you have a toddler who likes putting things in her mouth.
A poisoning incident can ruin a community garden's day. An ounce of parent
education, administered regularly, with good garden signage, can help you
avoid poisoning incidents and major hits on your garden insurance.
