Somehow the Trust for Public Land website didn't
stick to my earlier message:
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.
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.
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/
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.
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

Community Land Trusts
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?
