Searching for local community gardens.

Posted Friday, February 25, 2011, at 5:48 PM

I have lost track of local community gardens. If you currently participate in one or plan one this coming year, could you let us know.

A community garden could be one that is managed by a volunteer group for people who could use the fresh produce, small garden plots that are tilled and offered to folks who don't have a good growing area available to them, or different variations of the above.

No response is kind of what I was expecting.

Are we sure no one is planning something like this? I would bet the newspaper would like to know.

Jay Pope and New Harvest along with the men of the Halfway Home had begun one of these a couple years ago. I learned Friday that the church has been sold and so the future of this project is sort of pending right now.

I went to talk with them a few years back. They had BIG ambitions.

From past experience, I would suggest anyone starting one of these start small. There are a lot of realities that surface during the first year or two.
