This a request, open for discussion. It has not been deliberated to consensus by the villagers. It will be agreed, modified, or tabled at the meeting of (not scheduled).

In Resident's meeting 20090104 EcoReality residents discussed the garden design and intentions fro 2009. It was agreed at that meeting that the Co-Op residents would work cooperatively together to build, plant, manage, harvest and care-take a common garden area within the new fenced lawn that includes existing fenced garden site (and expanded considerably). The garden will serve mainly EcoReality residents, nonresidents and guests. Extra produce will possibly be for sale at farmstand or market. It is anticipated by residents that residents will be main contributors to this discussion, but we wish it to be transparent and to receive input and advice from others!

There will be a project page developed after this, for the purpose of design and building and maintenance, but for the purpose of brainstorming and discussion, this page will serve to collect data and discussions. Thank you for participating! Shan 11:46, 18 January 2009 (PST)

Purpose: This page is a place to discuss the "what" for planting in the garden, the "where" and "how much" questions and also the "how" for all garden activities.

What:

P= perennial A= annual B= biennial or long season annual OP= open pollinated
