fences and neighbors/multicultural veggies

Hi - it's not just a southern thing. My old garden had a four foot fence (the veggie, herb part of it), with a gate that was never locked. Later I added another two gates, one always locked (on the alley, next to the compost bins - strange people dumping odd refuse in the compost...), and one another open, welcoming gate. Never had much vandalism - kept it very tidy and pretty, occasionally we had overnight guests. Most folks really respected the space. The garden is located on a pretty tough, heavily trafficked street, lots of chroic inebriates and several low income highrises are across the alley. Of course - noone realized it was a 'community garden', they probably thought that it was private property...

best to all, Lisa in Mpls.
