I would like to start a project
« on: November 25, 2013, 08:19:44 PM »
I have a couple of places scoped out a couple of places.

Here https://maps.google.com/maps?q=starbucks+watt+and+roseville+road&ll=38.658548,-121.381733&spn=0.005101,0.004823&safe=active&hq=starbucks+watt+and+roseville+road&radius=15000&t=h&z=18

Or Here https://maps.google.com/maps?q=cottage+and+watt&hl=en&ll=38.6044,-121.387848&spn=0.002552,0.002411&sll=38.658548,-121.381733&sspn=0.005101,0.004823&t=h&hnear=Watt+Ave+%26+Cottage+Way,+Sacramento,+Sacramento+County,+California&z=19

Or Here https://maps.google.com/maps?q=cottage+and+watt&hl=en&ll=38.604167,-121.397134&spn=0.002552,0.002411&sll=38.658548,-121.381733&sspn=0.005101,0.004823&t=h&hnear=Watt+Ave+%26+Cottage+Way,+Sacramento,+Sacramento+County,+California&z=19

I suppose the first is owned by the city. There other two are commercial. I think the middle one might be owned by the church next to it. Ideally I would like to get permission especially at the middle site and try to develop that into a community garden.

Why I am posting here: I am looking for someone that has experience either planting without permission or has experience asking/making an argument for permission to plant. I don't always do this very well, I don 't have great people skills in unfamiliar situations. Or just someone that likes to plant things who would go with me. I have quite a few jerusalem artichokes that I have grown this year that we could plant. Nopales cactus, I have one I have grown from a cutting and I won't have cuttings for a while but I am sure we could get some. I have tons of canna lillies, not edible but better than bare ground and I have planted several of these in cottage park along the stream and they have done well. I will have lots of day lillies as I will have to split mine soon. Again not edible and not the most hardy in dry conditions.

I am open to other locations.

I will always prefer to plant food over ornamentals.

I have a truck and all the tools we would need, as well has two bike carts if we don't want to do it in a vehicle.

OK I planted jerusalem artichokes and gourds in two different locations that are basically abandoned. I also have lots of sunchokes (jerusalem aritichokes) that I planted for sale on Craigslist. I would gladly give some to you for free especially if you plan to grow them either guerrilla style or in your own garden. I chose spots that have water, even though I would have to use a bucket from he creek, I don't plan on watering that much if at all. I did not make it look like a garden either.
