Greening Cities, Growing Communities by Jeffrey Hou, 2009

Reviewed by: Brian Thompson
Review date: 2010-10-01

"Greening Cities, Growing Communities" is a case study of community gardens in Seattle. Written by landscape architects, this book is an excellent tool for supporters of community gardens in making their case in language understandable to urban planners and policy makers. For those of us already convinced, the breadth of activities at the profiled gardens will be surprising, and you could use this book as a unique travel guide to the Emerald City.

Excerpted from the Fall 2010 Arboretum Bulletin.
