FWIW, most of our gardens wouldn't be able to be registered since they're not a collaborative community effort that is teaching gardening. Those are the sorts of gardens who can sign up on the USDA list.

From reading the article, the USDA isn't really asking folks to register their own home gardens, just allowing community gardens to be listed. Not requiring them to be listed, not even asking them to be listed, just 'allowing' them to be listed if they feel like it.

Not sure what benefit the gardens would get by being listed, though. Gardens are usually only of really local benefit and the USDA is a Federal program so unless the USDA is gonna hand out a grant or something, don't see as how it would do the gardens much good to sign up.
