Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman.
Joanna Cotler Books/Harper Collins Publishers: NY, 1997.

A young girl plants seeds in an empty lot across from her city apartment to connect with a father she never knew. Slowly others in her community follow her example for their own reasons. Thirteen neighbors tell their own stories in this beautiful book. The gardening brings them together in a way nothing else would.

The story is written as short stories, a different one for each chapter, each building onto the previous.
