Try contacting your county extension office, talk to the horticulture
specialist. In Chicago you have a very reputable horticultural gardens. Make
connections with those folks, let them know waht you're doing, why you're
doing it. Even contact the Cabrini Greens folks who have a very reputable
name in urban gardening. Get some young urban kids to come out and show your
suburban kids that being urban isn't just about baggy jeans and crooked
hats. Get the media involved in that one. Good luck. Tom

  I am writing from Forest Park, Illinois.  I would like to know how best to
approach my village government about starting a community garden program.
Currently we do not have one, but I think such a program could add a great
deal of vitality to our community as well as merge a wide range of
ethnicities, races and classes.  We do have some public parks and of course
there is a business district, where even a potted display of flowers would
not hurt the eye.  Do you have any suggestions about how I might be able to
approach my local government or how I could arm myself with information and
credibility?  Any suggestions you have would be appreciated. 
Thank you,
Jennifer Giustino
