You may want to read the various reports available through the American Community Gardening Association web page to see what has already been done, what the methodologies and slants have been, etc.
There is currently a huge quantitative Community Garden study being done under the aegis of the St. Louis Gateway Greening people ( the  "Whitmire Study"  http://stlouis.missouri.org/gatewaygreening/WhitmireStudy.htm  ) you may also want to contact St Louis Gateway at (314) 577-9484.
Good luck with your research,

Subject: [cg] Youth Gardening Research and Evaluation

Dear Colleagues,
I am a Social Work professor at the University of Utah.  I am interested in conducting research and evaluation on Community Gardening programs with youth, especially youth who have been involved in Juvenile Justice systems.
I plan to approach my local Community Garden program to conduct a study.  I am interested in finding out about other Community Garden programs around the country have been working with youth in collaboration with Social Service or Juvenile Justice agencies.  If your Community Garden is involved in this sort of activity please let me know via my e-mail address or telephone number at the bottom of this message.
Even though I have a research interest, I am also eager about locating descriptions of these types of programs.  I have enjoyed engaging troubled youth in Community Gardening before.  I believe that it is an effective way to help youth find their center, and thus be able to participate in their communities in more rewarding ways.
In return for information I am willing to provide guidance and technical assistance on program evaluation.
I look forward to learning more about what Community Gardeners across the country are doing with youth.
Yours truly,
Ed Byrnes
