Please Help My Community Garden Project Win Tools

See this empty lot?  It's not going to be empty much longer.  We're turning it into a community garden - huzzah!

NeighborWorks Provo owns the lot, and we are working together to create this garden. If all goes well, we'll be expanding it to other lots.

The plan currently is to create 15-20 plots.  We can do more if the trees are removed.  I will see if the local university will consider donating the time of their tree crew to come knock them down.  That would also let in more sunlight.

At least half of the plots will be available for kids free of charge.  I am going to contact the local 4H groups as well as the Boys and Girls Club to see who would like to participate.Additionally, I will be using some of the plots myself to grow produce for the local food bank.  I've been wanting to do a community garden for so long just so I could do that.

We're currently in the running on Facebook for a tool grant from Corona Tools.  They rock!.  If you could help us out by voting, I would be grateful.

Creating a community garden can be quite a challenge. I was involved with the creation of a 75 plot garden up in Cache Valley while I worked for the extension service. I hope yours happens without quite the problems we ran into. The main thing for us was a faulty irrigation system and funding for everything.
