Greetings list serve people!
I recently wrote to those who attended the "What Does the Research
Show?" workshop that I gave at the ACGA Conference in July in NYC. I'd
like to invite all of you who weren't in attendance to join the
continuing dialogue to strategize about where to go from here regarding
community garden research-- about how best we can build support and
network among researchers, disseminate and publicize research, make sure
research is accessible to the audiences who need it, redefine a larger
research agenda, and encourage funding for research to be undertaken.
Currently, there are three ways to get involved:
1) Join our new community garden research email group, where we can
continue to network with one another. Anyone interested in or
participating in research is welcome. Email me, and I'll set this up
and maintain it.
2) Help with the community garden literature review Katherine Alaimo
and I (at the University of Michigan) are working on, by reading and
summarizing main points of articles. It's a good chance to summarize
research you've produced or are already familiar with, or to finally
read that research you've been meaning to. If you're willing to do
this (even just by summarizing one article), drop me a line, and we'll
explain the process. We'll send you a list of articles needing
reviewing, a template for how to do it, and will mail you the article
(if you don't have access it to it yourself). Folks who want to be
more involved in writing may also become co-authors of the lit review.
WE NEED MANY PEOPLE'S ASSISTANCE ON THIS PROJECT, since, as we've seen,
there is a large and growing body of research already out there.
3) Continue to send citations, links, and articles my way-- we'll get
links posted on the ACGA web site, and other citations will be added to
our growing bibliography.
Hope to hear from many of you!
