Subject: [cg] conservation easements on community gardens

Hello fellow gardeners!  My organization is in the beginning stages of
planning a community garden in Fayetteville, NC.  We have identified 
the city
lots (3 acres) and am in the midst of negotiating their future use for 
gardens.  After reading the sad stories about loss of gardens back to 
the city
after years of tender care, I want to make sure that that doesn't 
happen to
our gardens.  Our plan is to have the city retain ownership of the land 
have a conservation easement placed on the land which would be held by 
Sandhills Area Land Trust.  This easement would ensure that the land 
open space in perpetuity even if the garden was abandoned down the 
road.  I am
inquiring from you, the garden community, as to whether any of your 
are protected by easements or restricted covenants?  I am in need of 
easement to present to my Board and the City of such an agreement and 
am in
hopes that there may be a model in use that I could use as an 
Any feedback and information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thank you!
Candace Williams
