There is a wealth of information on the ACGA website for you to read on
myriad subjects. It's an awful lot of material, but should help you come up with
many of the answers that you need. <A HREF="http://www.communitygarden.org/">

I am the co-ordinator of a project in Australia which involves the
development of community gardens as part of an agri-tourism and community harmony
initiative. We have 26 - 50 acres of land which will be divided into alotments.
The town we are in is Armidale NSW which is 5 hours north of Sydney and is home
to the University of New England.
We have a high indigineous community here with large numbers of youth
unemployment, crime, drug addiction, teenage pregnancy and so on. The aim of the
gardens and the facility is to bring community together from all spectrums,
provide means of teaching basic living skills, provide programs such as early
intervention and parenting skills and the like.
I came across your sight and wondered if you could provide me with more
information on the gardens, how they function, their management, courses and
community participation programs that are run, the history of the project there,
the success of the project, what expertise has been required in order to oversee
its success, the involvement of the local community, the effect it has had on
youth and early and crime intervention and what elements ensure its success.
I appreciate your time with this matter, I understand my questions are very
broad, however I am writing initial plans for the development and seeking of
funding for the project and your assistance and expertise in this matter would
be greatly appreciated.
