Re: Community Garden land ownership


Check out the great paper: "Community Development Through Gardening:
State and Local Policies Transforming Open Space" by Jane Schukoske.
The pdf is online at www.law.nyu.edu/journals/legislation/
articles/vol3num2/schukoske.pdf 

Its a great study of different approaches to community garden
ownership and strategies local governments and community groups can
take to support community gardening.

<     I am curious to know who owns the land on which most community
<gardens operate.  I ask because the land on which our community
garden
<sits is privately owned and the owner is interested in selling.  Our
<local nature association is thinking about trying to purhase the land
<through a grant, but the price is quite high. =20
<
<=20
<
<     I would give me a better sense of what our options are if I knew
<how other community gardens operate with regard to land ownership.  I
<realize that responders can only reply about their own community
garden
<ownership, but that would be helpful.
