RE: a new The Community Gardener issue - request for submissions

Well, for starters, I’d like to know how many we gained and how many we lost to net 100.  But without any data, here are my top 10 reasons why people join and stay on the community garden list serve.


10.                       Because they heard they could catch interesting people talking dirty 24/7.

9.                     Because they get really solid information here

8.                     Because the people here are remarkably well-behaved, compared to some other list serves I’ve sampled

7.                     Because we can discuss slugs, grantwriting, linseed oil, mychorrhizal products, and New York politics all on the same day

6.                     Because we got direct, personal dispatches from near ground zero on September 11

5.                     Because Anna keeps it operating so smoothly

4.                     Because people like us tell them they have to do it

3.                     Because there are all kinds of folks coming along wanting to start or study or improve community gardens, and this is the place to get help

2.                     Because community garden organizing can be a mighty lonely business, and this is the lifeline.

1.                     Because Adam said so.


Sure, I could think of a few more, but that pretty much covers it.

Dear All 492 of You American Community Gardening Association Listserv Subscribers,


First, the headline news is that the number of subscribers on this list has risen by approximately 100 in the last year.  That’s quite a story in and of itself.  I would love to know the reasons why.


Secondly, the ACGA Communications Committee will be producing a second issue of The Community Gardener in mid to late May and I am writing to ask you to submit short (100 to 200 word) news items, announcements, or opinions about community garden related issues.  Please send them to me electronically at the e-mail address listed below.  The deadline for submissions is the weekend of May 4-5. 


And finally, anyone who has an opinion about why we have seen a 25% jump in subscribers to the ACGA listserv in one year AND who is willing to have those opinions printed in The Community Gardener, PLEASE send them to me and I will put them in.


Thanks to all of you,




Anna Wasescha
