The Problem

My goal is to create some project where the community to come together and that also has embedded educational values, so we've decided to put a proposal to create a community garden.

Our Plan

One of our community's biggest issue is the fact that our community isn't really a community, its a very divided neighborhood where people tend to have their own agenda. Problem with that is people who go to out neighborhood council go with conflicting goals, but that's for another project. In order to put the garden into effect we really need the backing of the council, so step one will be getting a proposal they're willing to approve. When we have permission and the proper paper work done, our local Audubon center is going to help provide native plants for our growing. Our local Home Depot is well known for providing discounts for people who need supplies for a community project so hopefully we can make a deal with them. Neighborhood council will hopefully provide us some funds, but if it doesn't cover it then we'll have to get a community fundraiser going, which wouldn't be too hard, but we're interested in seeing where this goes.
