Re: Urban Agricuture/Community Garden Research

One thing you could do is ask the participants to weigh their produce for you.

To estimate it you could measure how much land is used for each crop and 
use the tables in How to Grow More Vegetables
Than you Ever thought Possible on Less Land Than you can imagine, 5th ed.
by John Jeavons.  There is one column for US averages for conventional
row crop and chemical fertilizer style of growing and others for the
much better results that you get when food is grown biointensively on a unit
of land.  The results are given in pounds of food which would make the
results independent of the current price of food.  The book includes info
for fruit, grains, nuts, and other crops in addition to vegetables.
