Publisher of "A Place To Grow"



I just realized I have this on my shelf.  It's a great book, with lots of
narrative from gardeners who have benefited from involvement in a community
garden. David and Lynn presented a compelling piece based on this book at
the 1999 ACGA conference.  

Hassler, David and Gregor, Lynn and Snyder, Don.  A Place to Grow: Voices
and Images of Urban Gardeners." Pilgrim Press; Cleveland, Ohio.  1998.
Go to  pilgrim@ucc.org for ordering info.
