COMMUNITY GARDEN SUGGESTIONS FROM FOSS MEMBER DON McCLEMENT



  • Basis of concept – a flow – welcoming - inviting you in to this area and in to the park
  • Naturalized in sense of circular or oddly-shaped plots interrupted with sculptures, bird feeders, nesting boxes, benches or seating nooks – all amidst the apple trees and utilizing them.
  • What if the garden plots were run down the eastern border from the gatehouse and Rabba’s in such way that cover for wildlife could be added – nesting boxes, feeders, shrubs, etc...?  Is it possible to put some art structures to add to the location?  (a sort of a cohesive mix)
  • Incorporate community input for sculpting ideas for this and all parts of the park.
  • Some acceptance of crop loss to wildlife
  • Mix of vegetable and flower plots
