RE: definition of community garden

Depends on your purpose for defining it.  Seems to me that once when we were talking about who should be in ACGA, the definition of community gardening turned out to be something like “people gardening together in public.”  Then there’s Adam’s bit about 50% gardening and 100% politics.  I always tell people the important word in “community gardening” is not “gardening.”  If you are talking to a potential supporter, the description starts to have words like “sharing, relationships, growth, community development, leadership, self-reliance,” etc.   It depends on the purpose of the definition.

Here's a question for everyone...

If you had to define community garden/-ing in one or two sentences, how would you do it? I'm curious how people's definitions vary.
