I'm flattered, but I think you should check out the City Farmer links on the
ACGA website: http://communitygarden.org./index.html ; The Trust for Public
Land site: http://www.igc.apc.apc.org.tpl ; The Green Guerillas
Organization: http://www.greenguerillas.org ; and the archives of the
community gardeners webserv : http://email@example.com ( there is
much great stuff that you can use.) I'll be forwarding your query to the
last group in a minute, many of whom are master gardeners, food bankers and
renewable development savants.
The garden that I'm most intimately involved with is the
http://clintoncommunitygarden.org which is run by neighborhood residents
under the aegis of the NYC Parks dept.
Let us know how you are getting on with your project.
