In all honesty, this links available on the ACGA's website's "Gardening With 
Children" are pretty much the best available links I know of for setting up 
school and children's community gardens: 

You can access these links by pasting this html in your browser:
http://www.communitygarden.org/links/index.html#Children

All of these links are quite good, but I would like to guide your attention 
to a piece entitled, "Involving Children In Children's Gardens Farm In The 
City St. Paul, Minnesota" by ACGA Board member Anna Wasescha, Ph.D and Karla 
Ness, MFA.  A great deal of "re-inventing the wheel" can be avoided by 
careful reading of this paper.  Actually, the links really go from strength 
to strength and are the "best of the web" on this topic.   

Topics include: 

IV. Gardening with Children

Children's Garden in Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil 
Civic Garden Center's Youth Education Program, Cincinnati
