Rodale Organic Gardening plug for community gardening

From Rodale's, www.organicgardening.com, Zone 7
monthly on-line 'to do' calendar for December 2004:



[Organic Gardening Magazine has] been doing a fine job
publicizing community gardens around the country,
featuring a different community garden each month in
their 'Gardener to Gardener' section. If you are
interested in starting a community garden project in
your neighborhood, now's the time to start talking and
planning with your friends, neighbors, public
officials, and potential sponsors. For more ideas and
information, and to find other like-minded folks and
community gardens in your area, visit the American
Community Gardening Association at

Happy holidays to all!

(Note: For any organically/environmentally inclined
gardeners out there, Rodale offers a free monthly 'to
do' calendar by email, organized by USDA hardiness
zone. It tells what you can plant, what to look out
for in the garden, etc - plus, at least the Zone 7
(the Piedmont east of the Appalachians from Atlanta to
Washington DC, plus a narrow strip up the West Coast)
calendar has a brief section devoted to community
gardening and greening. Rodale has been excellent in
their support for community gardening recently.

To sign up, go to www.organicgardening.com, click on
'almanac' and sign up for your zone. You can find your
zone easily (if you have good eyes, anyway) online at

National Gardening Association, www.garden.org, has a
similar useful service for free, organized by 'area'
('Upper South', 'Pacific Northwest', etc, with some
excellent garden writers as correspondents. That one
is biweekly, twice a month).
