Q. How do I start a community garden in a vacant lot in my neighborhood?
Sign up for the the PHS Garden Tenders program. Here you will find the information and the contacts you will need, as well as answers to your questions about funding and securing the property. There will likely be a Garden Tenders class starting in late winter or early spring. Contact Sally McCabe so that you can be notified of the next Garden Tenders session.
The PHS McLean Library is an excellent information source on starting a community garden and PHS Members can borrow books. The library staff puts together useful subject guides with great resources on this topic:
These resources include "best of" books, websites, articles and more. Good luck and happy gardening!
