re: Greetings and Urban Agriculture

I definitely agree with Sally's suggestion of community safety for a
research topic and I'd be happy to give you some  contacts here in Toronto
that can provide you with some anecdotes. I don't know how easy it will be
to get any  police statistics but it would be great to have this kind of

Why not consider it from this angle?

Although many of our programs have been here for more than 25 years,
there's no written evidence anywhere that community gardening causes crime
to drop in a neighborhood. We all know it happens, we all use anecdotes to
get or justify our funding, and yet to my knowledge, no one has ever sat
down with the crime statistics of a neighborhood and done the math.  Doing
this in DC would be of IMMENSE HELP to the community gardening movement.

Thank you!
