[HideHouseGarden] Access to Water: Applied for.

From the Bay View Hide House Community Garden blog:

Q: What’s a community garden without access to water?

A: An empty lot.

Generally speaking, it’s a good thing that we live in a civilization. And for good or for bad, you know you live in a civilization when you have to apply to get access to water.

Today, the process of of applying to get water through the city has come to a successful conclusion. (At least so far.) That said, figuring out exactly who to talk to took a bit of doing. To make the long story short, if you have a legitimate project such as a community garden, it can be done fairly easily. If you’re starting a garden, we can tell you who to talk to. Just ask!
