Title''Unlikely Edens'': Towards Modeling a New Dwelling in Kansas City's Community Gardens
AbstractA history of community gardens in Kansas City as well as background information about community gardens established by the Japanese in the United States during World War II while living in internment/concentration camps in the desert. The practice of community gardens in the U.S. can be traced back to 1893. They were generally instituted to provide food for the poor and ''clean up'' vacant city lots.
