THANKS to everyone who responded on or off the list.  lots of good ideas...
i'm going to incorporate as many of them into my design as i possibly can.

one observation that i'd like to share with everyone about participating in
the big garden shows around the country... on the surface it's a great way to
contact the general gardening public.  on a deeper level it's quite an
experience to work side by side with other serious horticultural organizations
in your city and region.  it puts community gardeners right in with big
universities and environmental organizations as equals (for the run of the
show at least).  there are lots of networking opportunities with
philanthropists and introductions to people inside the nursery and landscape
trade that can pay off later.

also, the shows are usually during the winter when you're eager to garden but
the soil is too cold.  there's nothing like building your ideal community
garden in the middle of february and having thousands of people to share it
with.  OK, now it sounds like i'm trying to talk myself into this.
