i am with Neighborhood Nutrition Network, located in Gainesville, Florida. 
Check out our link at www.nnninfo.org. We are a non-profit and very involved 
with local food efforts through community gardening, schools, high school youth 
entrepreneurship, and local farm advocacy.

One of our goals this year is to establish a website which is a database of 
community gardens in Florida, to connect to one another more in our region of 
Florida.  If anyone out there knows of community gardeners or gardens in 
Florida, please let me know.
We have a database of over 50 already, so a pretty good start....including 
Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, Orlando, Miami, Sarasota, St. 
Petersburg, and more.  If you are a Floridian hoping to get involved with 
community gardening, feel free to contact me and i will do my best to connect 
you with those who i know in your area.
And, i will send another announcement with the Florida Community Gardening 
Network website is up and running.
