Re: Fwd: ACGA Conference Research follow-up

Please sign me on to the researcher's list serve. 

Suggestion: In addition to scholarly research, we should also have a central 
file of non-specialist articles and editorials on community gardens, pro and 
con (from NYC  the August 2001 Daily News Editorial "Garden Weasels" as a 
negative, the all too rare cg pieces by The NY Times' Anne Raver as a 
positive.) While this is work, some scholar-squirrel ( to use Gore Vidal's 
term for academic researcher) may be able to base a Master's thesis or better 
on an analysis of public perception of community gardens as seen in the 
media.  It's always good to show the carrot when work is proposed...

A book for your list, Anna (that you might have picked up last July when you 
were in NYC.)

Garden Guide: New York City
Nancy Berner,  Susan Lowry, 
 Joseph de Sciose (Photographer) 
Format: Hardcover, 362pp.
ISBN: 1892145200
Publisher: Little Bookroom
Pub. Date: May  2002
Retail: $19.99 ( you can get it from Barnes & Noble for $15.96)

This lovely pocket-sized book is a sensitive and intelligent illustrated 
guide to NYC's public gardens. "Garden Guide: New York City" is  a 
breakthrough for community gardens in terms of public perception and 
reecognition. The gardens are listed by borough and neighborhood, and 
community garden ( which have a good part of this book) are listed no 
differently than the New York Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Wave 
Hill or the secret garden at the Frick.  

It is also a pretty little book, suitable for the holiday season. Whipping 
out a copy of "Garden Guide: New York City"  in front of one of your local 
greening pooh-bahs and saying, "How come we don't have one of these?" might 
get the competitive juices going, some more recognition for community gardens.

Best wishes,
Adam Honigman
