Cornell University is doing a Garden Mosaics project. Contact Marianne Krasny at mek2@cornell.edu. Also Laura 
Saldivar-Tanaka a Cornell Student is completing her masters on hispanic gardens in NYC. Contact her at 
ls85@cornell.edu. I also wrote a short article for our newsletter at the Council on the Environment about multicultural 
gardens. I am attaching a copy of the file.
