I also like Jon's Seeds: the Journal of Community Gardening, since 
community gardening plants
all kinds of seeds, and seeds all kinds of community.   And it's rather 
miraculous how many
things can come from just one seed.

Also, I am wondering if America is taken out or North America/n is used if 
that would
make it more obvious that Canada is included.

Some more:
New Growth: The Journal of Community Gardening
Too new age-y?, too urban planner-ish? encompasses many positive new and 
improving aspects

Community Gardener
Direct. Includes basic components.

The Seed Bin: The Journal of Community Gardening
Two staccato Thes make it seem more like walls rather than flowing 
linguistically, but removing the first The seems to reduce the feeling of 
substance in the name. Indicates a cornucopia of beginnings
and possibilities.

Gazebo: The Journal of Community Gardening
Indicates a beautiful place where people come together, but reduces direct 
garden content.

Appleseed: Community Gardening in the New Millennium
Evoking the work of John Chapman and carrying it into the future.  Name 
likely to
carry less meaning for immigrants who did not grow up with the story, but
could provide a brief explanation to overcome this.  Helped by the 
commonality of
most people knowing and liking apples.

*Some important tree name here*: The Journal of Community Gardening
Would give it weight and evoke ideas of sturdiness and permanence,
and bring lots of connotations surrounding the tree.  Downside is
people may think more of forests than of typical community garden spaces.
Since many community gardens only allow trees in the common areas, this
could be a plus or minus. Some possibilities for trees: Oak Tree, Redwood,
Willow Tree, Pear Tree, Chestnut, Walnut (There is already a journal called
The Acorn.)
