> Hello Ecovillage gardeners!
> Are you curious to know just how much your community garden plot
> My name is Heather Scott, and I used to live with the Nolans in
> Song! I currently work in the Cornell horticulture department as
> part of the Food Dignity project. This project is studying the local
> foods movement and how communities are contributing to food
> security. It is in five counties around the US, from Oakland,
> California to Brooklyn, New York! ( for more information, see www.fooddignity.org
> Our piece of the project is measuring how much produce is typically
> grown in community garden plots. We ran a pilot study last year with
> THIRTEEN stellar Ithaca and Dryden gardeners. They measured their
> garden crops all summer long. Most gardeners reported that it was
> interesting and illuminating to see just how much they could grow.
> This year we'd love to recruit even more--our target is THIRTY
> garden researchers!
> Garden researchers will receive:
> --a digital kitchen scale
> --access to harvest data
> --a small research stipend after the conclusion of the season ($50)
> --cover crop seeds
> Please contact me if you're interested in participating, and pass
> the word around!
> Thanks for your help,
> Heather Scott
