Karen,

This sounds like a great location. We have 4 opportunities for gardens. This one sounds like it is shovel ready.

 

I’ll be sending out an e-mail to all members in the am.

Vickie,

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.
