Social Capital in the Lived Experiences of Community Gardeners

Troy D. Glover A1

A1 Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

Abstract:

In this narrative inquiry, I explored a community garden as a social context in which social capital was produced, accessed, and used by a social network of community gardeners. In particular, I focused on the distribution of social capital among members of the garden group. My findings suggest social capital can be both a benefit and cost, depending upon the position a social actor occupies within a functioning social network. Based upon this finding, I encourage leisure researchers to critically analyze social capital and study its potential for inequitable or even corrupt application, as opposed to focusing exclusively on its collective value.

Hi there,

A recent article in Environmental Education Research explores the effects of environment-based education on high school students. It is a followup to an earlier article in the Journal of Interpretation Research.

One/both will probably be of some interest…and they are a welcome addition to the Lieberman and Hoody study.
