I'm also very interested in this question.  I think Pa.State has a
program including training manual. It would be great to know of other
such programs. Is there anyone on the list serve with relationship to
Pa. State who could describe their program.

Thanks and happy holidays to all,

Ellen Kirby

I'm looking for models of gardening training designed for urban
innercity
settings, especially for low-income low literacy learners, covering
organic
edible gardening as well as composting and basic ornamental garden
design.  I'm
wondering if there are any urban master gardening programs designed this
way or
other similar education series.  Feel free to email back to the list
serve or
directly to me at grow19@aol.com

Subject: [cg] offering tilling as part of community garden services


Hi all,
I manage a large (39 gardens/600 gardeners) community gardening program
in upstate New York. We have always offered free tilling as part of our
services, and at present charge our gardeners a very low sign-up fee
($10). As we've grown, we have continued to offer tilling at no charge
to our gardeners, though it taxes our small staff considerably and gives
gardeners a reason to inundate us with calls in the spring (why haven't
you tilled my garden yet? when will you till my plot? i haven't had a
good season because you tilled so late....).

I would like to institute a fee-for service policy as regards tilling
and wonder if a)anyone else has faced this issue and b)if so, what a
fair-market price might be for such a service.


Thanks in advance for any thoughts you might have on the great tilling
debate.

Best,
Marci Nelligan
CDCG
