I'm glad you're thinking about this and using the garden metaphor. I suspect that Jay's idea of learnscapes holds some potential for nurturing online communities. Dave Pollard had a list of "what bloggers want" in his sidebar in 2005. I've pasted it in here because it still seems highly relevant to "giving participants feedback".

1 constructive criticism, reaction, feedback
2 'thank you' comments, and why readers liked their post
3 requests for future posts on specific subjects
4 foundation articles: posts that writers can build on, on their own blogs
5 reading lists/aggregations of material on specific, leading-edge subjects that writers can use as resource material
6 wonderful examples of writing of a particular genre, that they can learn from
7 comments that engender lively discussion
8 guidance on how to write in the strange world of weblogs
