Hello Everyone,

I am Shefali Bhattarya, a doctoral student at University of Florida. I had introduced myself to listserver once earlier sometime back. Currently I am working on my dissertation which focuses on developing a strategy for integrating Urban Agriculture (community gardens) in the city masterplan. I am right now interviewing the local gardeners to find out the benefits of gardening to them. From speaking to many gardeners now, I have come to know that they all feel that benefits from community gardening are vast and diverse.

Another component of my research deals with proposing some more (new) suitable sites in Gainesville for community gardens. But before this I have to identify some preconditions to community gardening for the City of Gainesville and therefore have to define a criteria for proposing new garden sites. I am using GIS for this. I would like to seek your suggestions for this component of my research.

I am looking for various criteria (both formal research based and non research based are OK with me) for proposing new garden sites in a city (e.g. nearness to a neighborhood or nearness to bus route etc). I would appreciate if you all can provide some input in this. I am eager to see what the criteria are and if they differ from city to city depending upon city characteristics e.g. city size etc. or they are more or less the same.

Hope to hear from you.

Thanks much.

Shefali
