We have over 300 members in our 2012 Community Garden Group.
We officially start working in our gardens after Feb. 1st, pending weather conditions.

AND the 100's of entries I posted last year about our gardens.
Who owns the ground? I work with home owners in the Salt Lake valley and beyond. They provide all of the land and water we use.
Can we work in the garden when we have the time? Yes with the exception of Sunday. Since homeowners are so generous about allowing our members into their backyards generally 6 days a week, we leave them alone on Sunday.
Is there a schedule? We create a schedule for group work sessions but you can always work in the gardens whenever you like, if the supervisor is aware of when you are coming and what you are working on.
By the way we are always looking for additional people to help us oversee other gardens we have.
Is it organic? Yes
Is member participation good? It is not only good, it is encouraged. A minimum of 25 hours during the season.
Are you still around? I'm very busy this month producing a lot of videos for my business. I will be very busy with other demands soon so I know if I don't get the bulk of my videos produced in January, I may not get them made in time.
