Re: CG bylaws

Thought it was kind of strange that your proposed CG slogan mentions the word "empowering people" in the same message that speaks of "bylaws" that govern the garden.  
Don't get me wrong, I truly believe that bylaws are necessary to operate a CG properly. 
I used to work for this company called Motorola for 17 years, and the corporate culture really got into words like "empowerment".  Yes, we had "empowerment teams" that met and as long as we stayed within the "bylaws" as dictated by management, everything was copasetic.
Oh yeah, our plant closed down about 5 years ago, when they realized that they couldn't stay in business very long selling external modems for 50 bucks each and it cost them $75.00 to build them.  
Sounds like the Elk Grove CG is very progressive.
Keep up the good works,   Jim

Subject: [cg] CG bylaws

Hi All,

       Elk Grove CG is working on our bylaws again, this time for realsies. My guy Larry Boese who is researching this says only one CG lists their bylaws on website, Clinton CG. Does anyone else have some they'd care to share? We do plan on posting ours to our website when they are completed and adopted.

Hey, we also lifted a wonderful slogan,

Nurturing community ~ Empowering people ~ Growing  good  food

but cannot remember who to give credit for this defining line. Anyone know? We need to officially ask permission to use it.

Thanks for your help. --Soleil
