Neighbor Garden Is A Vision For Larger Cooperative Movement | (Culture)s (Urbaine)s | Scoop.it
Green Acres is a neighborhood which some of its residents envision could be an ecovillage.

 

In the summer, in a small garden in Green Acres, just east of Indiana University, is full of tomatoes, sweet potatoes, peppers, basil, onions, radishes, corn, cabbage, strawberries… you get the picture. It us a lot of food.

 

Ann Kreilkamp owns the garden, but several people in the neighborhood and as well as students from IU’s Permaculture Department tend it, and, in return, share the harvest.

 

Jim Ollis, a student from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is staying in Bloomington for a few weeks as a part of his permaculture studies. He says Bloomington is ripe for this type of community living because it has a lot of land that can be used for small-scale gardening.

How to organize community gardens for foodbanks, pantrries, & soup kitchens | (Culture)s (Urbaine)s | Scoop.it

Article includes a very useful list of factors to consider when planning a community garden.

 

Finding collaborators. “That’s probably the hardest, most time consuming part. It’s a community garden, not an individual garden, so you have to find a group to work with. Find a way to connect with the community, to find like-minded souls to organize.”
