Please read through the links on the American Community Gardening Association ("ACGA") for sample rules, policies and advice on garden governance and day-to-day maintenance.
http://www.communitygarden.org There are many links on the site to community gardens throughout the Americas and Europe. I always learn alot from reading how other folks manage to come together in a community an create local oases of green in their communities.
The garden where I volunteer is:
Show this stuff to your group. Most gardeners really don't want to work much harder than absolutely necessary ( easier on the back and knees!) The options that you will come up with should keep the "re-invention of the wheel" to a minimum.
Have a great gardening season & barbecue!

Subject: [cg] Starting up

I live in a planned community where the developer dedicated a very nice area
as a community garden.  It was originally planted and then no one took any
interest in it, and it went to 'hades'.  This spring, some individuals
started weeding, and staked some plots for themselves (there are only 4-6
plots)  We are going to have a picnic in June for anyone who is interested,
but would love to have some thoughts as to how to start and maintain such a
garden.  This year, it looks like it's just going to be individuals doing
their own thing, but down the line?..........

All ideas are greatly appreciated!!
