Re: FRom community garden to farmers market?

Urban farming is an old, old story.  Usually it starts to be restricted when 
the first ordinances about banning ruminant farm animals begins. Once there is 
a surplus, community gardeners share it or sell it. My garden sells honey one 
or twice a year, other sell produce of all kinds. 

Now, it is hard for a volunteer community garden to compete with a truck 
farrm, but if the offerings are specialized - a particular kind of pepper, 
heirloom tomato, preserves made by a communtiy gardener, then there's an interesting 
niche market - But to expect a community gardener to be able to support 
herslef from her garden plot? Not particulalry wise. 

Best wishes,
