I have been horribly busy recently and have only now been
able to read through a stack of old CG Digests and saw your

The number of online resources that are becoming available
for community gardeners is growing; and many of them are
for folks interested in founding a garden themselves --like the
Common Ground Program at  http://celosangeles.ucdavis.edu/
an excellent site that was already mentioned. But I also
wanted to let you know about the resources pages on our site.

We have a list of general resources for community gardeners,
a list of community gardens online (which is growing pretty
fast!), and also a couple of resources that we've put together:
