I need some experienced advice
I'm wanting to start up community gardens in my area as well as gardening programs at local schools. There are many empty lots in my neighborhood in West Los Angeles and Santa Monica, California. Does anyone know how to find out who owns these properties?
I am also wondering if anyone has done community garden programs in public schools. What was that like? How did you get the cooperation of the school system for land, water, etc.
Has anyone approached private or non-profit schools and child care centers and facilitated programs there?
I'm really interested in getting some of these earth honoring and earth loving programs implamented in the next year. The children in this part of the world need more exposure to Mother Earth, the power of creation, and the cycle of life that these practices can teach. Please help and inspire. Thank you.
