Buying garden shares

Hi, all,

Question - maybe especially for Adam, but open to
everyone. A women's group is looking for ways to help
raise money to support re-creation of the Urban
Ministry Community Garden in Charlotte. Briefly, they
built a building on top of the old garden, but set
aside a lovely new site dedicated to a garden program.
It needs lots of work, though, and the Center wants
lots of $ to add a garden staff person to create a
fulltime program, build walks, bring in soil - you
know the list.

The group heard about the Clinton St/Hell's Kitchen
Community Garden idea of selling 'shares' in the
garden, or 'buying' a square ft of the garden. How did
that work? Is there a record somewhere of that? Have
other folks tried that approach to fund raising, and
if so, how did it work?
