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
