Many community gardens struggle to pay for expenses
Running a community garden doesn’t have to be expensive, but there are definite costs involved. Often, a lean operation like a garden can struggle to continue without financial support.
Solution: Sell some of your produce at local markets
Attaching a commercial arm to the garden has a number of benefits: not only does it generate cash for the garden’s operations, but it also teaches entrepreneurial skills to participants. In addition, community outreach at local farmer’s markets can build awareness for the garden among the people who are most likely to get involved and support it.
