I'll make it short and sweet, I live in Los Angeles, CA 90731 and I want to start one or more community gardens in my area and beyond. Anyone who would be willing to donate their time and or resources to any projects please let me know. Contact me at 310-955-8664 or besitzen@ymail.com

Hi Roddy:

I would look for already established gardens and see if there's some kind of network in LA. There's bound to be one. They can help hook you up with volunteers and perhaps even act as oversight for you to get some funding. I know there are organizations in several cities that do this, including in Phoenix.

You could truly wow people by installing low water use veggie gardens in LA. I know that in Phoenix, the biggest barrier to community gardens is paying for the water. Many community gardens end up becoming "degenerative" users of water and often they shut down when they can't pay. Search out some local experts (Ron Finley?) in your area.
