An International Conference on Community Gardening

An international conference called "People, Land and Sustainability:  New Directions in Community Gardening" will be held at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom this September 13-16, 2000.  There will be many community gardening experts from the U.S. on the program and it would be wonderful to have a significant contingent of U.S. gardeners in the audience as well. 
This conference focuses on the social dimensions of community gardening and puts it all in a global context.  John Ferris, the conference convener, has assembled an incredible list of presenters.  These include many names that will be familiar to members of the ACGA and many others with significant reputations around the world:  Catherine Sneed from the Garden Project in San Francisco, Robin Moore, a Landscape Architect from the University of North Carolina, David Hawkins from the Edible Schoolyard project in Berkeley,  Gerard Lordahl from the Council for the Environment in New York, Wolfgang Schuster from Brandenburg Technical University of Cottbus, Germany, Steve Garrett from the Tahoma Food System, Krzysztof Gasildo, Architecture Faculty from the Politechnika Slaska Silesian Technical University in Poland, Karen Payne from the ACGA, David Crouch, author of the definitive text on allotment gardening in England, Jaroslav Machacek from the Czech Republic, Ren Azuma from Mie University in Japan, Holger Schmidt from the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation in Germany and many others.
For more information about this landmark conference on community gardening around the world and the issues that tie us all together, contact sheila.jones@nottingham.ac.uk and include 'Garden Conference' in the subject header.  You can also learn more by going to the web page at www.nottingham.ac.uk/sociology/school/gardens.htm
I am trying to publicize this event around the U.S. If you know of other listserves which might publish this information, please bounce this message to them, or contact me at ariel@tc.umn.edu.
Thank you!
