In regards to benefits of CG's...the body of works which document the results 
in one way or another seem to be growing.

1.  Check out the ACGA web page at www.communitygarden.org, look for 
Cultivating Communities, a recently released publication, plus there are many 
links to CG organization's web pages.
2.  A couple of books (not complete by any means):  A Patch of Eden by H. 
Patricia Hynes is a wonderful book.  She traveled around to about 4 major 
cities to study cg's and then eloquently recorded her observations, including 
quotes from the gardeners.

communities, how they got started; stories are in the gardeners own words, 
with beautiful photographs.

is the history, second is a photo essay of urban gardeners with their words 
talking about garden, third, ???
