When we made the proposal to ODOT, we followed the successful proposal that was made by the Brooklyn Community Garden, which is also on ODOT owned site. Today I visited with Lee, the coordinator of the Brooklyn Community Garden. They received some excellent funding and we will be applying for some grants soon, as well. She was an excellent source of information on everything from funding to organizing day to day operations. I look forward to keeping in touch and having such a strong mentor as we build our garden community.
