Community gardening and gang / prevention

  • Subject: [cg] Community gardening and gang / prevention

Dear community gardeners:

I wanted to know if anyone out there could share some information  
regarding community gardens and gang or violence prevention.  I am  
writing a proposal for a grant for the funding of a community garden,  
and it is asking me to specifically describe how the project will  
contribute to a safe and gang-free community.  Does anyone have any  
research or anything concrete that I could use that shows that  
community gardens reduce community violence?  Thanks a whole lot!
