Survey: plot size, # of plots, rules & regs., etc.
This is a great place to find out what other community gardens are doing. If y'all could answer a few questions, I think we'll all learn from each other.
City/location of your community garden:
How many plots/gardeners:
Average plot size:
Rental term and amount:
Maintenance rules (weeding etc.):
Volunteer work required?
Amenities (tools, greenhouse, etc.):
I garden at Sunshine Communitiy Gardens in Austin TX. We have about 250 plots and approx. 200 gardeners. Most plots are 20 x 20 feet. There are a few half-plots. Regular plots rent for $90 per year. Each gardener is supposed to keep their plot planted and weeded and take care of the walkways around their spot.
Each gardener volunteers 6 hours per year to maintain the common areas and/or administrative duties. Garden tools are available for use.
