What are the basic requirements for a community garden?
Every community garden will vary, depending upon the site and the community who work in it. The site will have a micro-climate that needs to be understood and managed. The very basic considerations for the site include the slope, solar access and water. The gardeners will have choices about the way they want to garden and when. The formation and growth of the community group is as important as the planting. Like every living thing, community gardens and the groups that work them, evolve over time.
