Starting a Community Garden Publication


Tom,
I've written an rather long (160pps) manual on the topic and also  adapted
the ACGA's. The manual, "How Does Our Garden Grow: A Guide to Commujnity
Garden Success" is available form my organzation's website,
<http://www.foodshare.net/grow.htm> for $25. It has been reviewed in the
Community Food Security newletter by Alison Meares and elsewhere.  When I
wrote it in 1997, I  used end of year funding reports from local gardens and
also the Minnesota Greens  guide you've mentioned
I'd  be happy to email you my adapted version of the ACGA guide.
 Laura
