The best written, one volume treatment of community gardening remains,
Jobb, J. (1979). The Complete Book of Community Gardening. New York:
William Morrow and Co. Every time I get the bug to write one, I just pick
Jobb's book and realize that even after 23 years, it's hard to beat for
historical context and down to earth, practical advice. Because this book is
so good, it's usually missing from most public libraries (i.e., "Steal this
Book!" ) I obtained my copy from Amazon.

Another fine cg book that you'll find missing from your in local library is

A Handbook of Community Gardening
By Boston Urban Gardeners - Edited By Susan Naimark
Charles Scribner's Sons - New York 1982
SB457.3.H26 635 81-23302

ISBN 0-684-17466-9 AACR2

While it's out of print, you can purchase a copy through ACGA treasurer,
Betsy Johnson (I think she has a few copies left.)

Betsy's contact information:
