Re: Rochester NY community garden contacts
I know of CGs in Ithaca and the Albany area but none in the Rochester area.
My suggestions :
1) Call up the University of Rochester and ask to speak to their plant
biology, agricultural/ botanical people. Usually they can give you leads on
what's happening, if anyone local is community gardening, food banking.
2) Ring up your local plant and seed merchants. They should have an idea if
there are cg's in the area.
3.) These guys sound interesting, I'd give them a call:
Center for Environmental Information, Inc.
25 Years of Environmental Communication, Education and Information
Watch this space for CEI's enhanced online information service, scheduled to
debut in Fall 1999.
55 St. Paul Street
Rochester New York
(716) 262-4156, fax
4) The ACGA site has guidelines on how to set-up community gardens in their
links and topics <A HREF="http://www.communitygarden.org/">American Community
5) You are going to be working hard with your group of volunteers to create
your community garden; there is no reason to re-invent the wheel. These
wonderful guidelines on how to set up a community garden were forwarded to
this listserve by Yvonne Savio of the University of California Cooperative
