Some ideas on how to maintain a community garden:)

This by the people behind the Sensible Garden – a resident maintained pocket garden in South Norwood. One that’s five years old this month. We know of a few pocket gardens in the area we cover that are maintained on pretty much the same principles and…they’re doing just fine:) Basically, it’s about trusting people to do the right thing by each other rather than relying on a leader and a hierarchy…
