Soon after we launched our survey of residents (password: lrna) regarding the proposal for a community garden at the Honeyman Road detention basin, we encountered two major obstacles. Several of the nearest households are opposed to using the detention basin more intensively. And the Master Association is now again changing its mind as to whether or not it owns the detention basin (which it had previously informed us was now our neighborhood’s responsibility).
For these reasons we’ve dropped the idea of creating a community garden in this location, and at the moment do not have an alternative spot. But we do plan to have our permacultural landscapers follow up with those homeowners who indicated an interest in having a consultation regarding alternatives for their own properties; and we hope to see some innovative and imaginative outcomes.
