Hello Adam and Nichola
In 2003 I spoke with an upper east side resident who was trying to
organize a community garden project in Carl Schurz park - I am not sure
where the project went - but it sounded exciting- maybe Nichola would
like to contact him to see if she could plug into that project -- Dave
Kleckner, cell 917-841-9966, work 718-590-6104.
I would also check out www.cenyc.org website and go to the garden
mapping page to look at a map of all the community gardens close to her
like - El Sitio Feliz on 103rd Street, Mission Garden on Madison@111th
Street, Pleasant Park Garden on 114th Street or Papo's Garden --- all
great gardens. I would suggest going by on a warm(relative) weekend day
to see if anyone is checking on the slumbering gardens or give me a call
and GT could give you the contact phone numbers.
Hope this is helpful - Happy New Year.

I'm having lunch in a midtown restaurant, and the waitress, a Ms.
Miller ( NicholaMillerJazz@Yahoo.com) says to the party next to me that
from Minneapolis St. Paul. To which I say, being me - oh, I'm gonna be
August to see some gardens at the ACGA convention.
This led to talking about "Farm in the City," etc. and Nichola's
the middle of December ( these Minnesotan's are stern stuff) to get to
gardening as soon as possible. This lady's been in the city maybe a few
doesn't know where the gardens are?
I'll include some weblinks in this message, as Nichola is being copied

But my question is, does anyone know of any east side Manhattan
gardnens, like in the low 100s, that and open to new blood, and a nice
gardener from out of town can go to, when it's open, and volunteer?
I'd hate to send Nichola by and have the usual clannish crap, or "not
happen to her. Otherwise I can send her hands over to the Conservatory
Garden to work with the Central Park Conservancy.
Please respond to this list and directly to
looks to be a good gardener.
