Diana,

In addition to Lenny Librizzi's great list of resources on community garden 
policy (many of which, fyi, he compiled himself) I would like to make a few 
suggestions:

On the links page of the American Community Gardening Association website <A 
HREF="http://www.communitygarden.org/";>American Community Gardening 
Association</A>  , please go to Section III.  " Community Gardening  & 
Studies" .

In addition to Lenny Librizzi's 1999 study,  I would also take the time to 
read the other links and studies and download  the PDF file, "Community 
Development through Gardening: State and Local Policies Transforming Urban 
Open Space" by Prof. Jane E. Schukoske, associate Professor, University of 
Baltimore School of Law & Director of the Community Development Clinic. 

This downloadable article ( which may be available in bound form from the 
University of Baltimore Law School library) first appeared in the NY 
University "Journal of Legislation and Public Policy" (Vol 3, No. 2, Spring 
2000), is impeccably researched and written, has a rather extensive 
bibliograpy and is the notable in being both the first major article in a Law 
School Journal on community gardening and a comprehensive review of the 
subject.  The last I heard of the author was that she was doing research in 
India.  I believe that Prof. Schukoske may be back at the University of 
Baltimore now.

2) Many of us in the community gardening community have been waiting with 
bated breath for the results of the University of Missouri - St. Louis Public 
Policy Research Center/ Gateway Greening - Whitmire Foundation funded 
community garden study.  The Whitmire Study  <A 
HREF="http://stlouis.missouri.org/gatewaygreening/WhitmireStudy.htm";>
WhitmireStudy.html</A>  will be a seminal  resource for any policy thinking 
on community gardens. For further information, please contact Gwenne 
Hayes-Stewart or Tricia Freund at  <A 
HREF="http://stlouis.missouri.org/gatewaygreening/index.html";>Gateway Greening
</A>  ,

 Diana,
 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.
 http://www.communitygarden.org/pubs/index.html#Mono
 
 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.
 http://www.communitygarden.org/links/cg_policies.pdf
 
 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:
 http://www.oag.state.ny.us/environment/community_gardens_sum.html
 
 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.
 http://www.council.nyc.ny.us/pdf_files/bills/int0206-2002.htm
 
 Good luck on your research. Please post your results to this list.
 Thanks.
 Lenny Librizzi >>
