Dear ACGA members and colleagues,

Until December 31, Friends of Burlington Gardens is offering generous quantity
discounts on orders of two or more copies of our new book, Patchwork: stories
of gardens and community. We've also posted a resource guide at
http://www.burlingtongardens.org/gardenorganizer.html with helpful tips for
collecting and publishing a book of garden stories. Producing a book is an
excellent project to build awareness and support for your community or school
garden, and also to communicate the benefits of your garden program to
potential funders.

Patchwork includes vignettes shared by community gardeners from a diversity of
cultural backgrounds. The first person stories are accompanied by engaging
photographs of the gardeners in their plots, "Editor's Journal" entries with
useful gardening links, and a resource guide for starting and sustaining a
community-based garden. Additional information and reviewers' quotes are
listed at http://www.burlingtongardens.org/Patchwork.htm.

To order a single copy of Patchwork, stories of gardens and community, please
use the order form at the web link above, or send a check/money order for
$9.95 plus $2.00 shipping and handling to:  Friends of Burlington Gardens, 33
Tracy Drive, Burlington, VT  05401. If you would like us to send a single copy
of Patchwork as a gift to a friend or colleague, we'll include an attractive
gift card with your message on it. Just include the mail to name and address
with your order.

If ordering more than one copy of Patchwork, please download the Patchwork
Order form and take advantage of quantity discounts. Patchwork is a
collector's item that makes a great gift or addition to your community garden
resource library. Please feel free to email for questions or more
