Hello fellow greeners,
I have been working with a small group of neighborhood residents helping
to plan their community garden. We want the kids in the neighborhood
involved, but we have some concerns as well. We are looking fro some
advice on how to structure the childrens' involvement. Our questions and
concerns are the following:
1. Do we need a parental consent form?
2. With so many children in the area do we pick and choose who can be
involved so we are not overwhelmed by 20-30 kids (this is a small garden
and could accommodate 8-10 children max)
3. How do we decide who can be involved?
4. Do we set certain times children are allowed to work in the garden?
i.e. pick 2 days a week for 2 hours?
5. Who is ultimately responsible for the supervision of these
We really want the children involved but we do not want to take on more
than we can handle.
