Looking for information on how citys with a community garden program
operate (city run program)
or did the city set up a non-profit to handle it all?
Does the city set fees for the gardens based on neighborhood where it is
located (low income area - lower price?)
Does the dept collect the fees from the garden and hold the fees for
each garden? How is this done accouting wise?
Or do the fees go 100% to the city? If so does the city provide things
that the garden needs from this money when things are needed? Like
tools. Compost etc?
Does the city take a cut from the fees for the program just for overhead
on the program?
How is the money collected? And plots rented? Through the garden or thru
the parks dept?
Does the city require a garden board for each garden site?
Does the city pay for water?
Paid or volunteer staff to handle this? Number of gardens in your
All details of your cities program would be helpful .. for an upcoming
national parks and rec dept. article on community gardens...great PR for
your city community garden program

with links or emails to city parks dept community garden programs.
