Hope this 'fundraising' email is allowed. Our friend and long, long-term
worker for community gardens nationally, Sally McCabe, is now faced with the
possible loss of her neighborhood community garden -- Seedy Acres -- which
she and her neighbors have been gardening for over 20 years. They have saved
about 1/3 of the garden and 1/3 has already been sold, but now they working
to need to raise $40,000 to purchase the remaining 1/3 -- six plots totalling
about 5,000 square feet.
We who have benefitted from Sally's tireless work at the ACGA/Philly Green
office and at ACGA conferences (not to mention her great red hair and great
earrings and great laughter) could easily help her. Only $8.00 per square
Please join me in thanking Sally for her years of service by contributing
generously. I've always wanted to own land in Philadelphia - haven't you?
How many visitors to Philadelphia have their own tomato patch?
Checks can be made out to Neighborhood Gardens Association--Seedy Acres Fund
and can be mailed to: Sally McCabe, 437 Poplar Street, Philadelphia, PA 19123.
NGA is helping the gardeners with the purchase. NGA is a 501(c)(3) and all
contributions are tax-deductible.

idea. sally had no idea i was going to send it.
