Greetings and Urban Agriculture

Dear ACGA,

My name's Liz Kirchner. I'm an agronomist in Washington, D.C. I'm 
starting graduate school in the fall (Environmental Science and 
Public Policy) and I'm trying to form a research project examining 
urban community gardening systems in Washington.

I know that part of the ACGA's mission statement is to encourage 
research in community gardening. I wonder what kind of research the 
ACGA sees as needed in the community gardening/urban agriculture 
forum?  For example, is research into policy impediments or marketing 
more important at this juncture than further characterization of 
gardeners and their motivations?  Is horticultural extension 
information the limiting factor?  Or, are cities greening nicely, 
thank you?  I would appreciate any information, insight, or advice 
you might give me.

Thank you very much and best regards,
Liz Kirchner
