Garden Survey

2010 Citywide Community Garden Survey
The 2009/2010 survey of community gardens was designed to update GrowNYC’s central database of community gardens, update OASIS, and create new datasets around issues like food production and partnerships with schools.

Survey design, implementation, and analysis were completed by Mara Gittleman, 2009 Compton Mentor Fellow, funded by the Compton Foundation, with GrowNYC's Lenny Librizzi, GrowNYC. Responses used in this report were collected from August 2009 to July 2010, with a total of 223 survey respondents.
