 Friends, 
 
When in doubt, please look at the ACGA links - there's a wealth of information listed there, including many hyperlinks to Community Garden studies. Annual membership to help support this free resource available for Pizza and Beer prices ( http://www.communitygarden.org) 
 
 http://communitygarden.org/links.php#Studies
 
 
Notes from NYC: I'm back, after this missive,  to planting some rescued roses and hollyhocks in DeWitt Clinton Park in NYC.(54th - 52nd Streets, Between 11th & 12th Avenues)   It's back to the future, here, really, because this was the site of the famous DeWitt Clinton Farm Garden ( a children's community garden from the turn of the 19th/20th Century.) The DeWitt Clinton Park Conservancy is bringing back this garden site, right next to the docks, for the people of the City of New York. 
 
If you're in Manhattan this July 4th, the Clinton Community Garden ( located on 48th Between 9th & 10th Avenues) will be holding it's annual 4th of July Picnic.  Bring a dish, a six pack, some soda, or a couple of bucks to drop in the bucket. The de rigeur franks and hot dogs, flags and good feeling ( along with full summer perennial spendor) is provided by the garden.  Hope to see you there!
 
The Liz Christy Garden ( Bowery/2nd Avenue and East Houston Street) is getting ready to open after a trying time living next to a construction site. Looking around, a week ago, while helping set the foundations for the renovated turtle pond) its survival amazes, the Norway Pine and Cherry Tree (planted by the ACGA's Tessa Huxley, year back)  and so many splendid perennials the bones of this truly amazing garden.  If you see anyone inside the garden, be sure you ask to be let in. 
 
News from the Bellevue Hospital Sobriety Garden in NYCf: http://www.runninginterference.com/index.htm . Thank you for sending in notes of support , via this website,  to help save this endangered Bellevue Hospital community garden. Your letters, calls and e-mails of support, and those of hundreds of others seem to be turning the tide from bulldozing for a parking lot to the survival of this garden created and sustained by substance abusers working, day-by-day, to stay clean. Please keep the pressure on to help keep this essential and beautiful community garden alive for some of NYC's most vulnerable people. 
 
See ya later, got more digging and planting to do before I go to work tonight. 
 
Best regards, 
Adam Honigman
