Hello,(相手の名前). This is(自分の名前),(the position). I want to tell you about the problem from your call. 

According to your message, I understand that we have opened a community garden for residents to grow their vegetables and fruits. However, many people haven’t done it before and don’t know how to do it. We already post directions on our website but it didn’t work. So we are thinking about how to solve this problem.

To solve the problem, I suggest that we should provide a training event for people who don’t know how to garden. They can participate in activities and learn how to start gardening. Also, we can group the people. Then they can share ideas and knowhow together.

If you want to discuss this matter further, please feel free to call me anytime. Have a nice day!

In the business field, there might be other coworkers who have various experiences and knowledge. If a business leader can get advice from coworkers, making decisions would be less stressful.

For these reasons, I think …… (序論を繰り返す)
