Community gardening enhances the material of towns and cities through social interactions and accessibility to fresh food, creating an enormously positive effect within the lives of everyone it touches. LaManda Joy, the founder of Chicago’s Peterson Garden Project and a board member of the American Community Gardening Association, has worked in the neighborhood gardening trenches for years and brings her knowledge to the broader world in Start a Community Food Garden. This hardworking guide covers each and every step of the method: fundraising, community organizing, web page sourcing, garden design and planning, finding and managing volunteers, and managing the garden through all four seasons. A section dedicated to the basics of growing was once designed for use by community garden leaders as an educational tool for teaching new members find out how to successfully garden.
