Hey folks! I am really excited about this new resource. I am wondering if any of you existing school farms out there have any information on starting a garden committee? I am working with Whittier College to get their school garden up and running and I am wondering how many school gardens out there operate with or got started by a garden committee. Any resources (including who you should include, roles and responsibilities, length of time to allocate for planning process) would be incredibly helpful. I looked around the Resources section but didn't find anything on this topic.
Hey there! The Duke Campus Farm does have documents regarding the composition of its board of advisors (professors and community members) and the BoA responsibilities; and some info on the responsibilities of its interns. Might not be exactly what you're looking for (we don't quite have a fully documented timeline), but if that's helpful I can upload them to the Misc. resource section!
Yes, if you could I think that would be helpful! Please shoot me a message when they are up there!
