ACGA seeks supporting docs re gardens & 911 therapy

  • Subject: [cg] ACGA seeks supporting docs re gardens & 911 therapy

The American Community Gardening Association's Development Committee is
searching for supporting documents (news clippings, file photos, radio
segments, factual annecdotes, research papers) to show where gardens have
benefitted people in the recent month. 

Immediately following the September 11 disasters, untold numbers of people
experienced a variety of psychological pressure, including post-tramatic
shock. Some have not fully recovered as war-anxiety replaces attack-anxiety.

However, many have sought refuge from the calamity and stresses by visiting
gardens. Flower gardens, community gardens, and nature reserves.  

I'm looking for reports to help document gardens as part of a national
necessity in response to terrorism and the aftermath, war. The ACGA
Development Committee hopes to use such information to demonstrate public
need for sanctuary during times of disaster, crisis, and violence, as well
as the other uses food and flower gardens provide during less drastic times.

If you have a citation from a media source, an annecdote, or someone I might
talk to, please share by replying direct to kerrt@missouri.edu

Thank you,
Tom Kerr
