Community Gardening 101

Hello everyone!

The Kingston Community Gardens Network has done a wonderful service! It has produced a document titled Community Gardening 101, and it can be found through the Kingston website, via the How to Start a Garden menu title at: http://www.kingstoncommunitygardens.ca/

This 'how to' takes you through finding others who want to garden, establishing good relationships with your neighbourhood and the city, getting permissions, setting guidelines for gardeners and property owners, planning the garden, and more. It's easy to read and gives much to think about.

The Kingston Community Gardens Network is a partnership of Loving Spoonful (Kingston's Food Justice organization), the City of Kingston, Urban Agriculture Kingston, Oak St. Gardens, and OPIRG Kingston. The KCGN is administered through Loving Spoonful.
