Cracks in the Asphalt is a one of a kind guide book to thirty of San Francisco's Community Gardens, but will be of interest to those not in the city! One important aspect of the book is to let readers know that these gardens were born out of the hard work of each group of neighborhood activists whose role was not only gardening where there was a dumping ground, but to create a sense of community as well. Because of this the gardens are situated over looking freeways, in downtown areas, in out of the way corners and busy neighborhoods. Beautiful full-color photos throughout!
