Every gardener I have talked to has no idea how the "wild area" was set aside and who is responsible for it.

However, they all agree with me that it is nothing more than a weedseed generator that the winds blow over our plots. We gardeners make great effort to keep weeds from germinating in our plots and infesting to neighboring plots.

The "wild area" defeats all our efforts; I have asked Susan and others in the steering commite about who is responsible for that weedseed generator and no-one seems to know how it originated or who is responsible for it.

The "wild area" serves no purpose and is detrimental to the concept of our community garden; some person or small group is imposing this arbitrary and unwanted construction on the majority of plot-holders.

We, the majority of plot-holders should have been consulted and given our right to decide on this issue and not have it arbitrarily imposed on us.

I demand that the steering comittee address this issue and allow a democratic decision in this matter.
