Hi! I am looking for a plot of land where I can raise a garden this summer, and google searching turned up your blog and this post. Unfortunately it looks like I missed out on this deadline already, which was 8 days ago.

Do you have any suggestions about where else I could find space to garden? I live in Clintonville, but am fine with finding something anywhere in the city. I see your blog was going to have a map feature with gardens on it, but I can't seem to find it.
