Greening Cities, Growing Communities

Although there are thousands of community gardens across North America, only Seattle and a few other cities include them in their urban development plans. While the conditions and experiences in Seattle may be unique, the city's programs offer insights and lessons for other cities and communities. Greening Cities, Growing Communities examines:

- Planning and design strategies that support the development of urban community gardens as sustainable places for education and recreation

- Approaches to design processes, construction, and stewardship that utilize volunteer and community participation and create a sense of community

- Programs that enable gardens to serve as a resource for social justice for low income and minority communities, immigrants, and seniors
