Dear Mary,
 
Please go to the American Community Gardening Association website - http://www.communitygarden.org
 
Here's the link on starting a community garden - http://www.communitygarden.org/faq.php
and the "Links" page that has gardening with seniors, kids, etc:

Please feel free to go through the site and cherry-pick the stuff you think will be helpful. Also, there are great ACGA publications that you can get by joining the ACGA.

Subject: [cg] Community Garden and Kids Gardening Project


Hello. I could use some help brainstorming about a new project we are starting 
at our church. We will have a Kids Gardening Camp this summer with hands on 
gardening projects for the kids enrolled. Any ideas??
   
  Also, as we build the new raised beds in a couple of weeks, we would like to 
involve the Youth Group of the church as sort of apprentices with the men 
building the beds. The youth can learn to use the saws and other tools to build 
the beds as well as how to place the beds, tilling the flat ground bed and other 
useful knowledge the men will pass on. Any ideas about how to get the kids 
involved?? What insurance concerns might we be looking at??
   
  There is a senior community, not part of the church, adjacent to the garden 
1/2 acre lot. Any ideas on how we can get these elderly folks involved in the 
gardens??
   
  Thanks!!
  Mary
