Flanigan S, Varma R. Promoting community gardening to low-income urban participants in the Women, Infants, and Children Programme (WIC) in New Mexico. Community Work Fam. 2006;9(1):69-74.

This study investigated the effectiveness of methods to promote the WIC community garden project in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Researchers found that fewer  than 30% of clients surveyed had heard of the project; that caseload was unrelated to promotion methods; and that clients participating in the project reported consuming more vegetables.
