I visited a start up "community" garden run by non gardeners.
Apparently this will be designed as a teaching garden for kids.
They are about 9 raised beds built of cinder blocks, ~ 4' * 3'.
Water will be supplied by either rainfall or runoff from a large roof of
a community center. There is room for about 8 barrels. I think about 12'
vertical fall from where the barrels could be stored. There is talk of a
bicycle water pump. Sun looks good, with just shading early and late.
All this is in Atlanta 7b.
I think they want to grow a bit of everything, veggies, flowers and
I'm looking for ideas of what will be tolerant of care and how to
When I first looked into this I thought there would be someone there
that could teach me about gardening, not the other way around!
