What's Adopt a Garden?

"Adopt A Garden" a peice of land that is made attractive to the hearts and eyes of those who see it whether drive by or walking.
I was called to do the first one for the Town Of Redford, which was an honor
I gathered gardeners and recieved donations from various places for the project.

I didnt do much of the labor instead instructed everyone on where to put what and how.I also lead them to the places where they can get some of the materials free that were needed for my plan

It was a beautiful Masterpiece when done.
It was the most enjoyable time I have ever had working
Hit the from page of the Township paper for 3 days the bottom pic is the camera man taking a pic for the paper.
The grass pic is 1/2 the plot that we changes into a pretty sight.

You've done so many nice little things. Isn't so rewarding to fix up an area with flowers and mulch. I do enjoy it also. I always forget to take before and after pictures. That's great.

That's awsome. Anyone know how to go about starting a community garden where city folks could come and rent a plot of earth to grow things? Like a co-op or something?
