I am interested in hearing from anyone who know about community gardens in ORP, WR or other. How are plots allocated? Are there separate areas for organic gardeners? Does the HOA supply the water? Anything else helpful? I am interested in possibly trying to get our HOA to sponsor one.

St. James has two community gardens, one in Players Club and the other is in Seaside. They plots have separate raised beds and water. I don't know who pays for the water.

I know Ocean Ridge has community gardens because the last time we were visiting for the Builders parade of homes tour we saw them. Very nice indeed! The Garden Club maintains some of it, I believe, and you can plant and take the produce when it ripens. The Club puts out weekly bushels of produce as it ripens for anyone in the community who wishes to take the fruits/veggies. I think they told us leftovers, if any, go to the food bank.

My wife thought she saw a community garden while we were taking a final look at houses last weekend. I was driving behind the relator so I miss the garden. As mentioned in previous threads, WRP's lots are completely sold out, but only half of the lots have homes on them. There are lots for sale by the private owners and I noticed several house under construction on Saturday.

WRP doesn't seem to be a "retirement" development like the other Leland developments we toured (I only "looked" at SJP via the internet}. I saw a nice mix of retirees; empty nesters and families with children in WRP. Since WRP is "sold out" the homeowners are running the community. The link to the community association:
