Foothold - it would allow other uses. Golf doesn't, because of the hard balls used. Link to today's Star Tribune story -http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/268364062.html?no_mobile

Pardon my spell checker - footgolf, not foothold.

If there is a community garden, space in the garden should only be available for rent to Edina residents. The size of the plots will need to be monitored so no one or no group can use the Edina public land to grow and then sell their products.
