I've got a similar question. I'm developing small resource 'libraries' to give to low-income multigenerational garden projects (neighborhood center, 2 small churches, transitional housing). While in general these are not very 'book-ish' groups and are diverse in age (7 years old to 65 years old), I thought I'd ask. These will all be organic gardens, including a variety of sections: food, herbs, perennial flowers, butterfly gardens, native trees and shrubs, etc. The resources are not meant to be the only resources available (there will also be some hands-on workshops), but they are meant to nurture some neighborhood self-reliance.
If you were to provide any magazine subscriptions, books, videos, games, ... to provide solid basic info to low-income multigenerational groups -- what would you include in these collections?
