Dear Friends,

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.

Thanks for joining me in this.  I'm getting 10 square feet.  How bout you?

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