That is unfortunate.? No comment needed, for sure.
I have a garden plot already prepared and profited from its use last year with oversight done by one tenant.? She has a new direction (away from gardening) that is taking her time and no one is using this plot.? The soil brought in is a mix, rich with composted material and is about 4 ft deep. I would say it is about 1000 sq ft and is available for use.? Essentially the soil is already worked, no chemicals used to fertilize, weeds have grown, but other than than.....? This plot I think favors a mulch gardening approach, it is is direct sun all day and one would want to conserve water, there is a hay pile and mulch pile - leftovers from last year.
I''m not sure what your final intent is...to help with new start-ups or to actually have a community garden.? If it is of interest let me know.? Location is 6th St in the downtown area very near Osprey.

Greetings, Yesterday I sent out a call for volunteers for Bee Ridge Presbyterian Church community garden project. I regret I must retract that call. I contacted the church representative yesterday to let her know we were willing and able to assist with their community garden. I was informed this morning via proxy the church does not want non-church members, i.e. non-Christian volunteers. I will refrain from any commentary.
We are interested in opportunities to create community gardens. If any of our members are aware of groups that need assistance, please contact us.

The Sarasota Permaculture & Transition Meetup is a forum open to all interested parties to learn about and to implement permaculture design concepts. We can provide opportunities for learning and implement sustainability concepts into our lives. We can accomplish this through information sharing, presentations and active participation in projects that will take knowledge, (i.e. that which we bring to the group and that which we learn from others), into the realm of action by engaging participants in the process.
In our own right we are all leaders and followers. Each of us has talents and our collective knowledge will, over time, be organically mixed into the fold when opportunities arise to activate that which each of us brings to the table.
So come and "peer through the veil." As a community, it promises to be a good place to "plant" oneself and to grow.
