Has anyone participated in a co-op garden? They have one a few towns away from me, it sounds interesting. I think you pay a certain fee, agree to work a certain number of hours a month and then you have fresh veggies in season.

The one in my area is too far away for me to participate but I am thinking about starting my own next spring. Any ideas or thought as to how?

My dad's been in a co-op garden for several years. He doesn't have to pay for it. All this one is is a family friend who has a farm with a big section set aside for a huge garden. He gets the ground all ready and all they have to do is come and plant. Dad still has to take care of his section, weeding, watering, etc. When Dad rakes his leaves in the fall he hauls them out to the garden where the owner tills them into the ground for next year. He saw my dad out there one day and said he collected payment the other day. When my dad asked how he said he took about a half dozen tomatoes home for supper! lol
