More "community gardening is 50% gardening and 100% politics,"...

Dorene Pasekoff in PA and her crew have been working their butts off to  make
friends and common cause with neighborhood residents and stakeholders in
their area, getting elected officials on their side and getting the idea
that community gardening is a really good thing - like motherhood.

Here is a positive result coming from that work.

Hi,  Folks!
I finally had a chance to watch  the March 27, 2006 Phoenixville Borough
Council Committee meetings on Channel  54.  During Council Participation (near
end of the meetings), Middle  Ward Council Member Henry Wagner made a motion
that Borough Staff be directed  to write a letter from Borough Council to the
Housing Authority of Chester  County stating Borough Councilbs agreement
the Housing Authority  of Chester County either donate the land on which St.
Johnbs United Church of  Christ Organic Community Garden and Labyrinth
as a public land trust,  dedicated to community gardening, environmental
awareness and local hunger  relief or allow this land to be purchased through
Growing Greener  funds.
The motion was seconded by North  Ward Council Member Richard Kirkner and was
passed unanimously by the entire  Borough Council.
We thank Phoenixville Borough  Council for their support of St. Johnbs
Church of Christ Organic Community Garden and  Labyrinth.
