Chris Gibbons, founder, National Center for Economic Gardening
Christian Gibbons is the founder of the National Center for Economic Gardening. For 25 years, he served as the Director of Business/Industry Affairs in Littleton, Colorado and is co-inventor (along with city manager Jim Woods) of "Economic Gardening," an entrepreneurial approach to economic development. From the period 1990 to 2010 the number of jobs in Littleton doubled from 15,000 to 30,000 and sales tax revenues more than tripled from $6 to $21 million. The City did not recruit one industry during this period, nor did it offer one cent in incentives or tax rebates.
