I'm an Americorps volunteer in Gainesville, Florida, and taking on a new role
as community garden activator for a non-profit called Neighborhood Nutrition
Network. I've been doing this for 3 months.
I'd like to assist with establishing neighborhood garden projects, particularly
in low-income areas.
In my experience, the biggest challenge is 'community entry': how to reach the
interested folks in these communities to take part in the work. I do not want
to offend anyone, but only to offer my assistance where it is welcome, and the
community interest and support is there.
I know many of you have learned some lessons on this topic.
