Last month, GrowNYC and GreenThumb (NYC Dept. of Parks and Recreation) released a comprehensive report about community gardens in New York City today. The report comes from a survey issued in 2009 and the first half of 2010, sent to 500 community gardens, with a nearly 50% response rate.

The 2009/2010 NYC community garden report attempts to answer a number of questions, including:

  • How many community gardens are there in NYC today?
  • How many grow food, and which crops? What happens to the food?
  • How does one join a garden in my neighborhood?
  • What kinds of partnerships with schools and community groups do gardens have?
  • What types of events take place?

…and a lot more.
