starting up a community garden on a college campus

Sara BrownDecember 27, 2001

Hi!!! I am pondering whether it is possible to start a community garden on a college campus or if there is strict bureaucratic backlash against such an organization. Despite somehow getting it approved by the grounds keeping do you know of any grants in the Houston area or nationally that are offered for an artistically minded venture? Thanks.

Good luck with your project.
