nutrition info


Ohio State University Extension in Cuyahoga Co., aka Cleveland's urban 
gardening program, did a nutrition survey of its Garden Leaders a few years 
back.  The urban gardening program worked in conjunction with the nutrition 
department at Extension and a private contractor who does surveys.  They did 
find that the Leaders were, on average, going above and beyond the Five-A-Day 
standard of fruits and vegetable servings.  Most of the Leaders are older 
African-Americans, so they were compared against that national population.  I 
wasn't really involved in the survey, but you could go to the web page, which 
has a link from the ACGA web page (that address is www.communitygarden.org).  
The link is Seeds of Hope Harvest of Pride.  They may have info on the survey 
there or you could contact the Urban Gardening Extension Agent, Dennis 

Good Luck!  Lynn Gregor
