How do I start a community garden in my neighborhood?

Starting a community garden often requires a lot of time and energy upfront, but it is well worth the effort in the end. A great place to begin is by looking at the American Community Gardening Associations publication on how to start a community garden. The best resources however are the managers and members of existing community gardens in your area. You will learn quite a bit by talking with them and seeing how their garden operates.
