RE: FW: masters program in community gardens

I know of no "Community Gardens" masters program in the US, although a course on community gardens may have appeared somewhere as an alternative to "Basketweaving" or " Listening to FM Pop Radio: A Deconstructionist Perspective." ;)
Seriously,   if you read through the the American Community Gardening Association website,
you will garner the equivalent of a master's degree in Community Gardening ( of course you will not be able to give your orals, or have good karma for at least a thousand cycles, without having officially joined the ACGA http://www.communitygarden.org/about/membership.html. )
Go to:
http://www.communitygarden.org/links/index.html#Studies  where you will a few of the mongraphs and articles that multidisciplinary scholars have produced over the last few years to get an idea of what sociologists, lawyers and agronomists think about community gardening.
On a personal note:  If I hit the lotto and can ditch my day job, I'd  glom onto this program at the University of California, Santa Barbara ( a shrine to organic gardening God Alan Chadwick) in a heartbeat:
Practically, Jane, looking at your curriculum vitae, I think that a Master's degree in Public Administration with a strong concentration in urban, suburban and rural planning & zoning would be apropos. Courses in political science, US recreational and parks policy would be ideal followed internships at the Trust for Public Land, a state/provincial legislator interested in agricultural policy, followed by work at one of the better agricultural extensions would make you eminently qualified, that is after you take a law degree....
All for a job that pays, if you are lucky, maybe 40K. Your place in heaven has been reserved for you :)
Bless you,
Adam Honigman

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am interested in doing a Masters in Community Gardens.  I have a Bachelors in Education and in Environmental Biology/ International Agriculture and work experience both in Canada and internationally. I would be greatful for any suggestions or advice on universities that offer Masters Programs relating to community gardens. Thank you for your assistance.
Sincerely, Valerie Green
