>job training, life skills, educational opportunities, economic development
>and improving the quality of life. This study of 27 market gardens
>nationwide provides empirical data on these gardens, describes conditions
>under which they prosper or fail and provides comparative data to help new
>projects judge their own capacities. Five of the most innovative and
>"successful" gardens in California were selected for in-depth case studies.
>The study includes extensive appendices with an annotated list of urban
>agriculture and gardening projects, business development resources and
>funding opportunities for job creation and training in urban agriculture.
>Community gardeners, community organizers, economic development personnel,
>nonprofits, Cooperative Extension, local government and others who work with
>entrepreneurial garden groups will find these results useful.
