There are two respectives of tools for the environment service community.

Organic and Inorganic

This post discusses the organic needs of the community that could be redistributed or gathered amongst members.

The need for rainwater surplus can be unforeseen and daunting to new gardeners.

Many community gardens have contracts for water delivery when sources nearby cannot be located.

additionally rainwater collection systems and storage can be set up onsite.

Nevertheless,  water surplus and storage is a necessary part of sustainable planning.

Transportation and delivery problems, infrastructure emergencies, drought, water diversion and many other things can prevent access to water for community gardens.

Novice gardeners may also  underestimate the amount of water necessary to sustain crops.

I propose an action group I’ll call

The Water Bearers
Plastic Bag

This group could/would

Secure space and containers for water storage

Evaluate possible transportation and delivery options of water to scheduled/requested sites

Have time available at water storage site for water donations

Coordinate water fundraisers (money or water); individual donations of bottles or jugs
