Cookbooks plus (re: Cook books?)

Hi, Fran,

We've had good luck with cookbooks in Charlotte, but
we haven't exactly done 'normal' cookbooks.

'Cultivating Common Ground' has a recipe (or two) from
each of the community gardeners profiled. The book
gives each one's history of growing up in Charlotte
and garden tips, too, all gathered by youth as part of
a community building/oral history project created by
June Blotnick. I think their website still works
www.cultivatingcommonground.org. June and 2 gardeners
from that project came to the ACGA conference in
Chicago in 2003.

Our public library has its own publishing house,
Novelo Press. They did a cookbook called 'Hungry for
Home', in which dozens of NC writers/creative workers
shared a story and a recipe. There are a couple of
community garden-related things in it, including an
essay on food security and cgs (also, a recipe from
James Taylor and some other famous folks). I think
they are at http://www.novellopress.org/. Look around
for 'Hungry for Home'.

Anyway, community gardens are so rich in stories that
you might want to put recipes and stories together.

We made a delicious meal last night from eggplant and
other veggies 
grown in
our community garden. We Floridians are still in our
growing season!


I was curious to know whether anyone has seen
cookbooks published by
community gardens/members?


Best wishes for a happy season to all of you.
