Quickly - The place to go for old ACGA listserve discussions is our archive:
There's a good search engine on this site, which can go by topic, month, string, author, etc...
Boston and Philly garden land trust community folks on the list should contact you.
NYC places to look at.
Here's the Trust for Public Land website - go to NYC, get the contact information on Joanne Morse Andy Stein - who have a wealth of information on CG land trusts. Tell 'em that Adam Honigman from the Clinton Community Garden in NYC asked that you contact them. The Clinton Community Garden was the first NYC community garden that they worked with, back in the late '70s and 80s.
The NY Restoration Project - http://www.nyrp.org/ . The guy you should contact there is Joseph Puppello, the President. He was instrumental in getting The New York Garden Trust going. NY Restoration was co-sponsor, with NY Park's Green Thumb of the ACGA's national conference last fall. 
While not officially a Land Trust, NY Parks Green Thumb - a NYC agency funded by a federal grant,  coordinates and supports NYC owned garden properties.  http://www.greenthumbnyc.org/
It may be hard to get in touch with them during the next couple of weeks because this understaffed agency is breaking its collective tail registering and re-registering hundreds of gardens covered by the NYC community garden settlement.  The folks you need to contact are Edie Stone, Susan Fields or Doron Comanchero.
P.S. TPL has also helped save some community gardens in the Los Angeles area.  And...if your are not already a member of the American Community Garden Association - the group that makes this list serve possible,  North American's community gardening's continent wide advocate . It's 25 bucks ( a take out pizza, Chinese and a coupla beers) and essential. http://www.communitygarden.org/about/membership.html

I know that this has been posted recently, but can anyone point me to specific examples, contacts and resources where Community Land Trusts have been set up to secure community garden land?

Thank you,
