Thank you for your kind words, but I actually know much less than many of
the highly trained agricultural extension agents and master organic gardener
professionals on this list - who are up on the latest publications and maybe
even wrote 'em!
This is why I am sharing your query and my quick suggestions with the list
to see if we can't find a better answer for you than I can provide during
my lunch hour.
There are some interesting looking organic gardening CD ROMs on the Avant
Gardening site. As I have not personally sampled them, I can't vouch for
Just click on the "You Can Grow - CDs" link on the site and see if these
meet your needs.
This Australian page from "The Water Wise Garden" people looks promising,
and they have a CD-ROM that deals with water conservant gardening ( in both
Northern and Southern hemispheres) using organic principles.

You have demonstrated time and again on the ACGA listserve what a tremendous
internet resource you are so I come to you with what has become a
surprisingly perplexing problem. Our community garden has written a grant
for our kids' program and as part of the grant we want to make a list of
garden software available that would be good references for the kids to use
right at the garden site. What we're looking for is something that has plant
descriptions, common and Latin names, information on plant culture and
history, uses, etc. - in other words, the CD equivalent of the Organic
Gardening Encyclopedia or somesuch. I was expecting to run and search and
find pages of new and well-designed software meeting that description and am
disappointed by how little there appears to be. The closest I've come is an
interactive '95 version of Sunset Western Garden Book which appears to be
out of production. In your vast web of interconnectivity can you suggest any
software or sites that might help us in our search.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
