Re: Please help


For approaching the government folks in Forest Park IL, it might help 
also to have some sort of documentation of the public support for the 
idea.

You didn't mention how others in the community felt about the project 
(i.e. the people who would be the gardeners)--if you haven't located 
these people, you might want to do that before you approach the 
government or funders.  Unfortunately, it has been my experience that 
"community" gardens are occassionally started by one person with little 
community to go along.  This can work out, but if someone is starting a 
garden because they think it will be beneficial to low income people (or 
youth or elderly, etc), it generally is best to talk to the low income 
people (or youth or elderly, etc) to see if they are interested in the 
process.  

Hope that helps, and good luck to you!
