The "Church of the Brethren', a Protestant sect, I believe has published a book of some interest to faith based community garden groups:
A new book on gardening, "Gardening for the Earth and Soul" by Heather Dean and Tom Benevento, has been published by Brethren Press. More than a sustainable gardening book, it's also a book of social commentary, global peace, and children's activities, all pulled together by Benevento's line drawings. Drawing on their education and personal experiences, the authors address both the practical and spiritual benefits of gardening. Benevento, the General Board's Latin America specialist, and Dean both have worked alongside the indigenous people of Central America and used their experiences to create community gardens that thrive in the urban landscape in North America. The book is a practical and inspirational "how to" manual. Cost is $18.99 plus shipping and handling. To order, call 800-441-3712, go online to www.BrethrenPress.com, or buy it at the Brethren Press bookstore at Annual Conference this summer in Charleston, W.Va. Refer to item number 8534
