Something is lacking

One of the signs added to the Franklin Community Gardens:

Franklin Community Gardens

While it makes sense to say this to help ensure that the time and effort of those caring for the gardens is indeed enjoyed by them, I feel it is lacking.

What does it lack?

It lacks the encouragement to build community. To foster the conversation that can occur over this plant or that arrangement. The kind of conversation that I was fortunate to have on the recent walk about with Chris Clay.

What do you think? Any suggestions for re-wording this message?
