Gee, some kids have all the luck! ;)
What a wonderful opportunity you have to help your Boeing & Microsoft neighbors "give something back" through your new community garden. Growing a couple of rows for the hungry would be a great start ( and a splendid opportunity for your neighbor's children to get meaningful volunteer experience suitable for college application essays) as well as a cutting garden for local senior citizen centers, hospitals, etc.
A quarter acre fragrance garden for the blind would be splendid as well as enabled gardens for seniors in your area.
Where to get ideas?  The links on the American Community Gardening Association are a wonderful start http://www.communitygarden.org . After reading through the links, the master gardeners on this listserv are a great resource for any specific community gardening question you may have.
But the very first thing you should do is join the American Community Gardening Association,

The American Community Gardening Association listserve is only one of ACGA's services to community gardeners. To learn more about the ACGA and to find out how to join, please go to http://www.communitygarden.org

Gathering research for a community garden.  Graduate of Hort Degree and have
l0 acres prime bottom land to use for the community gardens.  Thought I would start with 10 plots this summer and keep available planting information and equip. for the use of the community.  We have equal  in large homes and apts around the area.
Most of the area Boeing or Microsoft, so money does flow around here.
