Description :
Through the examples of the community gardens in Brooklyn, Manhattan (Kansas) and Austin, this article analyses their current state and how its historical roots shaped its response to current policy concerns. It then examines which populations comprise today’s community gardeners and what motivates them to participate. It concludes by positing that a greater diversity of gardeners and gardening motivations, accompanied by changing leading views on urban land uses, will lead to such urban gardens remaining a more lasting feature of city neighborhood landscapes.
