Adam and all,
In England rather than community gardens there are allotments . One of the
oldest, Uplands Allotments Association, has been in existence since 1948. I
think they are a little different than our community gardens but check their
national association homepage and see some very familiar problems with
encroaching development. The organization which is like ACGA is NSALG
(National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners)
