Mount Tomah Botanical Gardens - Stephen and Tahn (May 2009)
Starting a community garden can grow an intimate network of reciprocity as fast as healthy food.

But like plants it works best with stable roots,and fertilizer, a sturdy container a breeze of change and a ray of warmth.

To keep Mary from being quite contrary, we need to ask her how the garden is going to grow before we plant it!

There should be an agreement amongst members; preferably written and signed of garden group rules and the 1 year contract.

Information should be provided about the site viability results of surveys and testing and recommendations for improvement and use.

Fundraising efforts should be adopted and sponsors located.

Most importantly community gardens need to create and organize a resource and labor pool to work the land in personal plots and public pathways.

We all can stay up to date on political policies, initiative and programs that promote these endeavors.

We will also make every effort to network with current applicable community organizations. By working with business to contract produce, donate land and store space and encourage community conservation through zoning.
