Other research on community gardening

  • Subject: [cg] Other research on community gardening

I thought I would add this to the discussion of journal published research.

This study features the work of Greencorps Chicago, a community gardening/ job training program.  Many on this forum will be familiar with our program and you can find out more on the website.  While much of the research mentions urban forestry, it tends to actually be community-led, program-supported greening efforts that are being studied.
