Re: Philly studies shows positive financial impact of
Good morning America,
Enough bad thoughts about pear trees, Liz Christy, the Philly blues. Its time to get a jump on Spring. Buy some discount Xmas cards. Ask your folks to write personal garden thank you messages and hit all the businesses ( and anyone else )in the area. Ask for contributions in cash or in kind (last years seeds, bulbs, Chia pets, good wishes, or anything you can use, sell or trade). Ask your idle talkers to spend some time at each stop and be positive about the community. Let them talk to the bad guys on the block and maybe they can become your friend this year. Feed back is always good, perhaps you will get a good suggestion or two. Build the organization for the Spring campaign.
I lived outside Philly for a year in 1969-70. Loved a bar know as Filthy Franks. It was inhabited by bikers, hippies, and other low life party animals. Always had a good time and somehow it was easier to find after midnite, a six pack, and a blond.
All greening is good greening and all studies improve the body of knowledge. However, bad open space work is very expensive in the big city. Join the mayors funded lot project, try to turn some of those lots into gardens to replace the one that will be lost for lack of funds.
This is to early me to be typing, Got to get up early work on Spring. Russ
