As always, with any cooperative human endeavor, the best policy is to is 
trust,  but verify. 

While I shared with you a particularly egregious example of garden chicanery, 
and Mr. Mead from Seattle shared another distressing incident,  I believe 
that the general run of us could be trusted with 20 dollars, which is more 
than I can say about most US Corporate Boards of late.

By way of  contrast, the assembled crew of gardeners that I met at last 
week's NYC ACGA conference were among the most benign that I have ever met - 
great souls.  Who would have ever thought it? French community gardeners 
reaching out to create community despite cultural norms that view individuals 
and families as the central unit;  the awe-inspiring example of community 
gardeners from Sarajevo who gardened in the face of sniper fire in a horrible 
ethnic conflict.

Community gardeners aren't perfect (as anyone who has met me will certainly 
attest)  but we strive.  Stuffing a ballot box for a cause is as American as 
cherry pie.  Again, we have to trust, verify and maintain a sense of humor 
about the process. 

Happy gardening,
Adam Honigman
