A mobile home park satisfies the first two requirements, but we have yet to find a park that fully satisfies the third. There's a solution out there somewhere . . . we just have to find it. We certainly appreciate all the suggestions. Container gardening definitely could play a role in our future plans.
I'm not sure of the terms to use.
I live near a military base: they often 'rotate' furniture pets cars (sometimes even near adult children) through owners.

I have heard of RV park book exchanges.

Could there be some sort of serial plant caring?
