The Five Borough Farm toolkit is a set of field research tools and methods for gardeners themselves to track progress towards their own goals, i.e., food production, compost production, landfill diversion, healthy eating experiences for participants, project completion, task management, etc.

This project is in pilot phase with 25 gardeners who participated in an open space technology workshop in May 2013. After the workshop, the ideas were synthesized by Phil Silva and Liz Barry, and materials were distributed to participating gardeners during summer 2013. Here's a table of contents of the protocols to date: Screen_Shot_2013-10-14_at_2.07.07_PM.png

NB The name Five Borough Farm is because this project began in New York City, which has five counties known as boroughs.
