How many community gardens are there in NYC?

Via this awesome post over at Edible Geography I learned about Mara Gittleman, Compton Mentor Fellow at GrowNYC, who has been working on answering exactly that question. As well as calculating (not estimating) exactly how much agricultural product is actually produced in the city. During her research she produced this map below, which I really loved.
