Adam, Thanks for your advice.  I already know it will be a temporary garden
but 10 years is better than just letting it sit empty that much longer.  And
maybe by then a community garden will be such a part of our town that
another permanent spot will be donated to the cause.Lynne

when the church land on which your garden has been sited for a number of

another purpose ( cash sale, construction of low income housing, a school or
