Get Organized

Organize Your Leadership Team

We’ve already said it and we’ll say it again: don’t go it alone! The following tips will help you think about who to involve, how to involve them, and how you’re going to work together.

Support Your Gardeners

As a garden leader, you know better than anybody that community and school gardens are as much about garden community as they are about gardens. Here-in lies your role as an organizer–how do you organize the people in your garden? Developing resources such as agreed-upon guidelines and a gardener handbook goes a long way in to promote buy-in and keep people informed.

Develop Your Garden Organization

Whatever it’s size, your garden group will likely have organizational needs such as handling funds, use of land, and working agreements.
