Community Living: The Quick and Easy Guide to Starting a Community Garden

 

Find The Right People 

Organizing your own community garden can seem overwhelming at first, so it's important to have a group of likeminded people around you that are interested in the idea and have the same passion that you do. Whether you decide to use a site like Meetup to get a group together or you have a variety of friends and neighbors who are already excited about it, ensure your group has gardening and planning skills to bring to the table. 

Research The Community 

There's a good chance that you'll want to choose a gardening site that's not too far from your home, so talk to local horticultural organizations and your city or community center for information on available areas of land. Once you know the details, it will be easier to determine what exactly you want to do to fund your garden, whether you want to pay into it on your own or you want to create a sponsored society so the costs are covered. There may even be loan programs in your center that are available for your project, so ensure you ask around. 

Start The Planting Process 

Once you've determined who your crew will be and where you'll be creating your garden, it will be much easier to move forward and determine what exactly your garden will be. Do you want it to be a collective where you can all share together? Or do you want separate plots so all your members can do whatever they like? Whatever you decide, getting out the shovel can be the ideal time to throw a garden party and get everyone in on the fun. 

Growing vegetables and planting your own garden has become a more popular pastime in recent years, and it can be easier than you think to get your very own community garden started. If you're planning a garden and are looking to buy in a new community, you may want to contact one of our real estate professionals for more information.
