I am the co-chair of the Urban Agriculture Committee for the Community Food Security Coalition and a new ACGA Board member.

Anne Carter, UMass Extension and co-chair of the committee generated a fact sheet for planners to promote and support urban agriculture and its value for promoting community food security. I have attached it. Their is a 30 page urban ag "primer" that the committee developed on the CFS Coalition's web site that is downloadable as well, www.foodsecurity.org.

Hope this is helpful.

Dear ACGA folks:

I am looking for information and/or published research that supports the use
of community gardening as a tool for effective urban planning.  Specific
topics might include community revitalization, property values, crime
prevention, etc.  Any info tying the planning and greening would be greatly
appreciated.  Thanks.
