Community Gardening Parts 3 and 4
Here it is, late September in Alaska. In tribute to memories of our truly gorgeous summer, Alaska Center for Public Policy offers two more links to community gardening articles that were originally published in the August issue of Alaska Health Policy Review.
First, we have an interview with Leif Albertson. Leif is a member of the Family Development faculty at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service office in Bethel. In his interview, Leif reveals the results of a meta-analysis he conducted on the health effects of community gardening.
The second interview is with Nick Moe. Nick is the Sustainable Communities coordinator at Alaska Center for the Environment (ACE). Nick is especially excited about how community gardens build community and in the policy issues around the development of community gardens.
We welcome your comments regarding your thoughts and experiences with community gardening.
