Modesto, Central Valley, CA...

Post  PNG_Grandma on 6/20/2010, 2:43 pm

Hi, I live in a senior community, mobile home park and have convinced the owners to allow a community type garden in one of our empty lots. I'm hoping to convince some of these long time "long row" gardeners that SFG is the best way, especially in our limited space! Any suggestions are soooo appreciated!

Thanks...I've been working on this project since March. The old mobile home was finally pulled out, now the leveling has been finished and the layer of rock is being spread just in case some potential new home owner wants this particular lot. When it's all ready we can begin building the boxes and finally grow something! The soil will be provided so now I have to convince the owners that I want Mel's Mix!!

Welcome to the forums! I would like to officially invite you to participate in the regional forum for Northern California and Central Valleys. The intent of the regional forums is to give you quick access to those folks that live closest to you and share similar issues.

It sounds like you have made a great start with your garden. Maybe you can convince them to do a "test" box and when they see the results they will opt for even more! I have sure been happy with the results in my garden.

I am sure we would all enjoy seeing and hearing about your progress.
