Community garden vs co-op
Last year one of my neighbors and I combined on a shared garden. I live next to a vacant lot that is owned by our local electric co-op and I have sent an email to them to see if we might be able to use a portion of the land for a larger scale community garden.
My question is whether it is in our best interest to run it as a true community garden - assign plots and let everyone run their own or set it up as a co-op where everyone shares the work and the harvest. As I live in a fairly rural area I think the shared might go over easier because while most ppl have the space for a garden they may not have the time to handle many different crops in a large enough scale to make it worthwhile.
