START A GARDEN IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD! 
Here are some helpful tips:

  • Find some land that you can use that also has an adequate water supply.
  • It must also receive at least 8 hours of sun a day.
  • The size of the land can vary but remember each gardening family could easily plant and maintain a 20 ft by 20 ft plot.
  • Most community gardens are at least 40 ft by 40 ft. If you don't have enough land sometimes local schools,  churches or businesses might let you use their land. 
  • Next get commitments from a few families that want to be active participants.
  • Most importantly there must be a garden leader. Someone needs to step up and be in charge.
