RE: garden size - smallest?
In Cleveland our requirement for community gardening is based on number
of people not size. There must be at least 5 people from different
households involved at any size space. One of our community gardens
was just a number of containers on the 7th floor patio of a senior
housing/activities complex. The emphasis was on the fact that
people did this together (communal effort) and were exposed to growing
vegetable plants. The garden has since disbanded though we would
still allow and welcome a garden such as this to enter our program.
love the discussions on this list serve - I catalog many of them for
thanks, Lynn Gregor

hey, I think we have one
smaller than that. at the Capitol Avenue Senior Tower they removed
asphalt from two parking spaces and created a four bed community
garden. i think it's about 16 by 12 feet. it's a very nice
garden, but the waiting list is awful.

- On the other hand&.gardens come in all sizes&you don t need
large acreage for a community garden!
- Wanted you all to know that Sacramento is about to approve (while I
am at the ACGA Conference) a very small community garden inside a small
city park in the heart of the downtown area& the overall size of the
garden is 40x60 and there will be
- 8 10x10 plots and 2 10x10 plots with ADA accessible raised
beds&and a common area / compost area&there will be room for
expansion around the initial site for about another 12-15 plots in the
future& the Garden is set to open in june
- Looking forward to the Toronto Conference&there is still time to
make your room reservations and there are still some great fall airfares
specials out there as well !
