So are to send suggestions for various areas etc? Is there a way to have
members edit it, kind of like how wikipedia is written by members. Now that
I think of it, perhaps a google docs link that members can edit and is read
only for guests. Or perhaps it is just far more work than I realize.

One factor to include is local pests. I live in Jerusalem where we do not
have squirrels (ground or tree), but the major pest is hyrax. Thank God
they don't eat many bulbs, but there are the snails....
