I would like to start a community garden and a commercial neighbor has agreed to allow me to use his empty lot to start this garden. My question is twofold. 1. There is no water source available so how will I water the garden especially when young plants are tender and need daily watering; and 2. I tried to plant a small vegetable garden there this past year but the soil was not very good and there were lots of rocks (and chunks of cement and what I think pieces of old rubber tires). What can I do to inprove the soil to ensure a hearty crop?
