Garden Share, matching gardeners with landowners in the Eastern Sierra

Do you want to garden but don’t have a place to garden?

Do you have a piece of land that you’d like to see have a productive garden?

Join the Garden Share project!

We are matching landowners (with garden space) to gardeners (who need a space) in the Inyo and Mono counties.

The Eastern Sierra Land Trust is sponsoring the Garden Share project, in cooperation with Eastern Sierra Harvest, in order to support local gardening, make affordable and nutritional food more available, gauge the need for community garden space in our region, and minimize road miles of food eaten in the Eastern Sierra. Matching landowners with gardeners is the perfect solution for cultivating both food production and community.

1. Print out an application on our website (look under the What’s New section), pick up an application at the Eastern Sierra Land Trust, 176 Home St, Bishop, or call us at (760) 873-4554  to receive one by mail.

2. Email your completed form to serena@eslt.org, return the form to our office, or mail it to the Eastern Sierra Land Trust, PO Box 755, Bishop, Ca, 93515 by May 18, 2009.

3. We will contact you with your possible matches.

Applications will be accepted after May 18, and matches will continue to be made through June, 2009.
