I think you're right, but the monograph/article/whatever should be called
"Gardening Together" if it's to be an antidote to "Bowling Alone" -- after
all, we're talking about community gardening and that's usually done with
more than one person. . .
Selling "From the Roots Up" programs as "Bowling Alone Antidotes" and as
ways to raise social capital ought to get us some serious funding from
