Hopefully you have looked over the National Community Garden Survey 1996, ACGA Monograph by Suzanne Monroe-
Santos which should answer some of your questions. Note that the survey is from 1996, the latest available. Perhaps a
good masters or doctoral project would be to update this survey.
Also, in 1999, I compiled whatever policies were in place at that time. There have been other policies developed since.
They are not included here:
Comprehensive Plans, Zoning Regulations, Open Space Policies and Goals Concerning Community Gardens and Open
Green Space from the Cities of Seattle, Berkeley, Boston, and Chicago- Information compiled by ACGA Member Lenny
Librizzi for the GreenThumb Grow Together Workshop "Lessons From Community Gardening Programs In Other Cities"
given March 20, 1999.
New York's current policy is through the legal settlement reached between the city and the NYS Attorney General.
Here is a copy of the agreement from the AG's website:
There is still pending legislation in the NYC City Council that would create a policy to move forward, protecting existing
community gardens and setting up a procedure for new gardens.
Good luck on your research. Please post your results to this list.
