OT: Garden Writers Association


This may be a resource for those of you looking for articles and/or books on
iris or other gardening topics. Also, those of you who are in charge of
getting speakers for meetings and other events may find this site useful as
a resource.

 Garden Writers Association (GWA)
http://www.gardenwriters.org/

The Manassas, Va.-based Garden Writers Association (GWA) claims a membership
of more than 1,800 professional communicators in the lawn and garden
industry. Its website, in addition to providing information about the
organization and the benefits of membership, including the association's
annual symposium scheduled September 9-12,  2005, in Vancouver, also
includes several features that will be of interest to the broader community
of gardeners. Visitors may peruse an extensive listing of books authored by
GWA members and can also download a sample edition of the organization's
newsletter, _Quill & Trowel_.  The Speakers Bureau may help meeting
planners, club leaders and others find a speaker to meet their program and
budget needs. The site also introduces the organization's Plant a Row for
the Hungry (PAR) project, describing it as an effort "to create and sustain
a grassroots program whereby garden writers utilize their media position
with local newspapers, magazines and radio/TV programs to encourage their
readers/listeners to donate their surplus garden produce to local food
banks, soup kitchens and service organizations to help feed America's
hungry." Visitors can download the PAR cookbook in pdf format for free to
see various member-submitted ideas for preparing fresh vegetables for the
table.

But set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
