Cultivating Community: Principles and Practices for Community Gardening as a Community-Building Tool
by Karen Payne and Deborah Fryman

In this ACGA publication, authors Karen Payne and Deborah Fryman explore basic principles and values of successful community empowerment programs of any kind, and illustrate how these principles have been applied to community gardens across the country. The document showcases how community gardening programs can advance community development, empower local leadership and nurture families, strengthen economic development and improve overall quality of life.

Funded by the Annie B. Casey Foundation it is intended as a resource for individuals, organizations and coalitions whose specific aim is to use gardens to empower people by building their skill and confidence to transform their lives and their communities. Cultivating Community provides useful tips on how to approach community gardening as an organizing tool and highlights specific practices and activities that have been proven to work. Stories and case studies from community gardens around the United Sates are featured.
