RE: Please help

Why do you need the government?  You can start a community garden with any
five people who can scrounge, borrow and dig.  I'm not trying to be
facetious - as private citizens you can do great things.  If you find that
the government has resources that are helpful, by all means go after them.
Community Gardens thrive in back-yards, vacant lots, abandoned railroad
lines, church yards and on property of agencies that serve special
populations.  You've got all the right ideas and reasons for gardening in
community, try to think of as many ways to garden as reasons for gardening.
Also, think about who in Forest Park has money and go talk to them.

  I am writing from Forest Park, Illinois.  I would like to know how best to
approach my village government about starting a community garden program.
Currently we do not have one, but I think such a program could add a great
deal of vitality to our community as well as merge a wide range of
ethnicities, races and classes.  We do have some public parks and of course
there is a business district, where even a potted display of flowers would
not hurt the eye.  Do you have any suggestions about how I might be able to
approach my local government or how I could arm myself with information and
credibility?  Any suggestions you have would be appreciated. 
Thank you,
Jennifer Giustino
