Want to create a community garden?
Laurel Harrington, Christner’s Director of Landscape Architecture, in conjunction with her colleague Laurie Harmon from George Mason University, wrote a handbook to guide the creation of community gardens for the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA). Geared towards park and recreation agencies, the handbook is a step-by-step guide to create a grassroots community garden – from planning and fundraising through implementation. Emphasis is placed on long-term project viability through thoughtful planning and stakeholder involvement, as well as the health, community and recreational benefits of community gardens.
You can download the guide from NRPA’s website.
