Community gardens boast many attractive features, from appearance to opportunity for healthy food production to encouragement of citizen engagement. This project looked at the potential for community gardens to enhance their reach and successes.
Is access to community gardens important to city residents, and if so, how and why? What facilitates or limits participation in community gardening activities? How can city governments effectively integrate community gardens as a part of their ongoing city planning and infrastructure development processes?
Community gardens emerged as important to study participants, for a variety of reasons. A draft framework was developed for integration of community gardens in city government.
