Tufts Study, Rural Community Gardens


Hello Folks,

This is just an FYI. There is a study just put out by the Center on Hunger 
and Poverty, through the School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts 
University. It is called, Community Gardening in Rural Areas and is written 
by Ashley Sullivan. It is somewhat simplistic, but has some good information 
in it. The bad news is it never mentions ACGA anywhere in the report. The 
author does site research and information from some individual programs 
across the country. 

Hope folks get a chance to review the report and that we can also convey to 
folks at Tufts that ACGA and other groups are alive and actively promoting 
community gardening across the country.

Gary Goosman
