Requesting Info on Ethnic Gardening

  • Subject: [cg] Requesting Info on Ethnic Gardening

Dear Colleagues,

We are working on a program that seeks to teach and engage high school 
students in an informal science education program that uses hands-on 
educational experiences within urban community gardens.  An important 
aspect of this program is learning about the gardening practices of people 
from different countries and ethnic groups.  We are searching for printed 
material that highlights the planting practices of people from different 
places/groups so that we could provide our students with examples of how 
these practices differ.  However, we are having trouble coming up with much 
information.  One search (on none other than Amazon.com) revealed a book 
entitled: "Growing Home: Stories of Ethnic Gardening" by Susan Davis Price 
and John Gregor.  Would anybody be able to suggest other sources of 
information from which we could upon to share with our students?
