Steering Committee Team
SWOT input / review (can be real time/ off line depending on time)
Initial SWOT input:
Strong Leadership and Support for the community garden
Triumphant Life Church
Cornell Cooperative Extension
Access to many resources
Location (sun exposure / water access)
Community need (food desert)
Pest Management, fence in a flood area. Requires special provisions.
Seed starting (need to establish)
Sustaining Funding (need a funding plan)
Community Outreach plan
Need to Develop a Roadmap (1yr 3yr 5yr plan/vision and how to get there)
Good support for people with varying levels of abilities (old paved parking lot)
We're a group of local volunteers who have banded together to create a community garden. We meet frequently and are always looking for additional help.
