'policy long term lease

Hi Katherine,  The ACGA archives should be a good source of information
on this topic. As well, the archives at the City of Winnipeg can be
helpful but slow. St. James Horticultural Society has had agreements
with the city since 1927.  So there is a lot of history there.
treebranch.org is also helpful.You may also want to check out the
legislation archives at ACGA   Regards.  Karen   >>>

Subject: [cg] Requests for examples of policy/long term leases and
agreements
with Cities

Hello Fellow Gardeners!
We are faced with a quick deadline on a new City of Winnipeg Community
Garden Policy. The City wants it written by the end of January.
The City is hosting some of its own consultations but a group of
gardeners
and community people are also hosting an information and
consultation/networking meeting Jan. 10th. We are interested in setting
up a
Community Gardening Network for the City. We want a one-stop shop for
garden
info, sharing of resources, information etc.
*My request is for examples of land tenure agreements, long term leases
etc?
from other community organizers and gardeners who can tell us what has
worked for them.

*As well, examples of policies and pitfalls that others may have
encountered
would be helpful.
  Canadian content may be more appropriate but the strong examples of
community organizing and battles in the US for gardens are
inspirational. I
hope that we can learn from what other communities have experienced.

* The City is also looking at By-Law reviews this month-(any help for
that
one too?)
 .---Successful and unsuccessful examples are all welcome! (hopefully
before
the 10th!)

Thanks to all of you for taking the time to consider this.

Subject: [cg] Re: [tb-cybergardens]: Your vote can help former
GreenThumb
director get National Mural Award

Another reason to vote for this mural is that it includes a portrait  
of Liz Christy, who founded the Green Guerillas and was a good friend 

to community gardens. It takes less then 5 minutes to fill out the  
one page form.

Kathryn,
 
Please feel free to use  the bylaws, keyholder's agreement and any
useful documentation on the Clinton Community Garden website -
http://www.clintoncommunitygarden.org as a possible invented wheel,
as well as the links to individual community gardens in the garden links
area of the ACGA website - http://www.communitygarden.org . The links
page - http://communitygarden.org/links.php 
 
Laura Berman runs the Canadian community garden listserv and you've
been in touch with her, hopefully. Laura organized the hosting of the
ACGA convention in Toronto and knows the Canadian scene intimimately.
You really should post your "all points bulletin,". Hopefully you've
been in touch with Laura at laura@foodshare.net 
 
Greenthumb in NYC writes an awful lot of garden leases, and I've copied
Ms. Susan Fields, the one sentient person in that office, on this
e-mail. If Susan answers ( I don't know if she's doing a vacation now)
it should be helpful to you - if timely. 
 
 
If I'm sending this at 8:10 am Eastern Standard Time, so it will be in
their inboxes,  but don't hold your breath. 
 
Best wishes, 
Adam Honigman

Kathryn,
I'm surprised Adam didn't point this out to you.

Not sure if you have looked at

http://www.communitygarden.org/advocacy.php 

a new update on the ACGA website. These policy links were gathered from
 
participants in an ACGA sponsored conference call on CG policies in  
November. There are examples from individual cities in the US and
Canada  
including a failed effort in NYC to create community garden policy
through  
legislation. Several bills were introduced in the city council but
never  
made it out of committee.

Also links to a 42 page article by law professor Jane Schukoske on CG 

policies and legal battles as well as a much shorter and now dated
survey  
that I gathered of CG policies as of 1999. Much has happened since
then.

Hope these are helpful and good luck. Hopefully you will have something
to  
add to this web page at the end of January.

Lenny Librizzi
