EA, I've made a copy of your Yard Sharing FAQ into this group, attempting to offer a little more substance to our GTIA members.  Let me know what you think.

Has anyone looked into SPIN gardening? I am using some intesive techniques, but not many of them right now. The square foot seems to work best for me in town. Still it seems that this may be the way to go.

Forgot to come by and update. Living back in Colorado Springs. Love the house and surrounding area. Garden is coming together slowly as I am still wading through box hell.

Right now I am bouncing between Boulder and Colorado Springs, so I am not certain where my yard will be this summer. Perhaps I will be looking to find a share myself this year. Last year I was offering to share garden through hyperlocalvore but had no responses. Still the energy was put out and perhaps it will help others to find a way. Thanks to everyone for being there.

Thanks so much for the compliment Judith! It means a lot. I am working on just what you suggest as well as a yardsharing workbook to get through the process of building their own arrangement, while anticipating some possible pitfalls. Any ideas you have are welcome!

Thanks again!

Hi Liz -

I've poked around the Hyperlocavore site. It's beautiful. And what I think it could benefit from is a couple of step-by-step guides. One for people with land to share, one for people who have no land but want to garden, and perhaps one for folks who want to get a group gardening effort going. If you could give a clear idea of the process(es) you envisioned that the structure would support, that would be helpful, I think.

Hey Lane!

There's a great book by the same name! The idea is really taking off all over the place!

Liz: Some folks from Guemes Island started a program
in our nearest town called, "Eat Your Lawn".

Eat Your Lawn

I like that first video especially, But creating the Commons is something we
forgot sometime way back there. Farmers Markets are starting to bring
that back, even if they are often in parking lots!

Keep up the good work. Come and visit us:
