Chairman of the bored
I have recently read a few articles about community gardens. Coincidently, I had a resident the other day sort of idly inquire if the city supported any community garden programs (not really). It got me to thinking on the topic - I personally enjoy gardening a great deal and the benefits of a community program of this sort seem like they could be numerous. Do any of you have any experience with city sponsored community gardens using municipal land? It occurs to me that one possible problem might be continuity - i.e. you get a group of citizens who are really enthusiastic about gardening in April but by September volunteer interest has dropped off so far the park or garden plot area turns into a weed infested, overgrown eyesore. There a handful of 'private' community gardens in our area but no public ones. I'm curious on your thoughts.....
