2) Please go to the ACGA website and go through all of the listings,
especially the studies and publications that are currently available on the

Main site:



Community Garden Studies:


As you will read, much of the currently available literature deals with the
demographic type of work that you have done and has been, in the main, been
self funded. 

3) Basically , I think that you're looking throught the wrong end of the
microscope - community gardens are created by communities for their
communities. The question should be, what kind of gardens do these
communities create and why do they create them ( taking in variables of
funding, ethnicity, focus.) 

4) What community gardening  needs as a movement now is quantitative
research ( not collections of empirical, anecdotal information) on how
community gardens reduce crime, measurably improve the quality of life in
neighborhoods, in language that elected and appointed city officials (
decision makers) can understand and use.

There is an interesting study being done now in St. Louis by the Gateway
Greening foundation by a team of professionals from a local University. For
the scope of this study, you may want to contact:

5) A link to San Francisco community gardening groups:

San Francisco League of Urban Gardeners. This group helps to maintain over
100 community gardens in San Francisco: 


Great luck, please let us know how it's working out for you.

I'm a grad student, new to the list. Can anyone provide me with names of
organizations that might fund a study of how demographic variables (gender,
age, ethnicity, etc.) and garden characteristics (size, membership,
resources) affect the participation and experience of individuals in
community gardens?

I'd also love to connect with other folks (especially in the San Francisco
Bay Area) looking at these factors.
