RE: info on numbers of community gardens


Research in the archive of this listserve should prove invaluable:


The links of the American Community Gardening Assocation  (ACGA) Listserve
are priceless:
I'd also read the  the Trust for Public Land Website:
http://www.igc.apc.org/tpl/ with care.

Community gardening is not only a North American phenomenon: it is also
European. The community garden plots in the suburbs of Paris, for example,
were started in the 19th century as a way of keeping male industrial workers

Ed. Wilson, P.L. & Weinberg, B, "Avant Gardening: Ecological Struggle In The

Tel: 718-963-2603. 

There are other people working in this area like Malve von Hassel &
researchers in St. Louis and Toronto that you can access by looking them up
in this listerver's archives.

Let us know how your paper works out. Maybe if it's good, the ACGA will put
it up on their server. However, the competition is pretty good.
