> Hi there,
> I am one of a group of neighbors in Marin County California, whose houses
> surround a 1+ acre field that we would like to see planted with native
> species, wildlife restoring plants, birds and butterfly habitat, compost &
> natural soil building, and a small community garden. Unfortunately, the county
> has something else in mind along with some people in the larger community.
> They want to see a "park" in the conventional sense: picnic benches, play
> structure, oleander, & 80% turf. We are in the process of coming up with an
> alternative design for the park, and of trying to increase our numbers and
> persuade a majority of people in the surrounding community, that wildlife
> habitat will be more harmonious, gratifying & inviting. Our neighborhood
> group does not have the funds that the county has for slick blueprints etc,
> but we want to present photos, a rough design, and sound concept.
> Please let us know if you can help us. I wonder if you have any staff that you
> could send to one of our neighborhood association meetings, to give a
> presentation, or if you would have any input for the actual design. Also, Is
> there a community Gardening Group, Coalition, umbrella organization Alliance
> or anything in this area?
> Thanks so much for your wonderful work!
