a public herb garden
I belong to a CSA (community supported agriculture)group that receives its
fruit and vegetables at a community center in the Bronx. Because of the
difficulty of delivering herbs (they wilt and it's very labor intensive to
pack) the farmer has agreed to grow plugs for us to plant at the site. My
idea is to have a raised bed (or pots?), with enough herbs for our members
and the people who use the center to share. I am also thinking of having a
rain barrel and watering can with a sign asking people to help by watering,
and scissors on a string for them to "take what they need and leave the
rest." Does anyone have any experience trying something so rational? so
utopian? If it works in the Bronx, surely it will work anywhere..
Advice gratefully accepted.
