First contact the websites for "The Trust for Public Land" and NYC's "Green
First and foremost community gardens are created by people in a community
who look at a garbage strewn lot ( in urban areas) or a commons or church
yard in small towns. Ideally it is a group of commited gardeners of varying

with people, teaching and organizational skills.
In a community garden there are no chiefs, only gardeners.
