Re: question about successful communit garden projects

A good place for you to go would be the American Community Gardening 
Association website  <A HREF="http://www.communitygarden.org/";>American Community 
Gardening Association</A>  links page which lists community gardens by state and 
has links to community garden websites throughout the United States and Canada. 

Asking us what that the best three gardens in NYC or the country is 
impossible - there are thousands in the US and Canada that have bragging rights - and 
they are extraordinarily diverse in scope and mission.  Some are 10 acres and 
others are less than 150 x 75 feet.

On our website - which is nowhere near exhaustive, you will see that we 
community garden sucessfully on anything from  permafrost in Canada to near desert 
conditions in Arizona. 
 Some feed hundreds through a combination of what they grow and their 
involvement in local CSAs/Foodbanks, others create botanical oases in formerly 
garbage strewn, crime filled lots - not a few do both.

The story is that there are thousands of successful community gardens - you 
know those "thousands of dots of light" that President Bush the elder talked 
about? 

Read the ACGA links, click on the sites and when at all possible, visit.  
You'll find that coming up with the best 100 community gardens will be an 
amazingly daunting task. 

Best wishes on your journey,
Adam Honigman

 Does anyone know what the top 3 most successful community graden projects in 
 New York City and/or the nation (successful in terms of number of 
 participants)?
 
 If you could include any contact information about the projects I would be 
 appreciative.
 
 Thank you in advance for your time.
