Title: Organizing leadership
I have written once before about the community garden project that City Year Columbia is organizing in Columbia, SC. While the information a few people have sent me has been wonderful, one question in particular stands out at the moment. Most available publications lend advice to a community member interested in starting a garden. Our situation, however, is different. As an organization that would like to establish a garden for the communities and continually assist in its upkeep, what would the best way to engage already-existing community leadership? We already have longstanding contacts in the two neighborhoods considered for the garden. Does anyone have experience in this regard?
