seems to be turning, a bit. Please don't let up in your messages to our
elected officials. For more information, please go to our website:

FYI - This is what "juice," political influence, a withdrawal from the favor
bank, looks like when community gardeners  like you do the work in their
neighborhoods, working with local politicians and stake-holders, to make the
alliances they need to make to ensure their survival.

Just to let you know b our meeting yesterday went well.  Nothing will happen
to the garden until October, if at all.  They agreed not to touch it until
after the growing season.

We also talked with them about finding alternative sites and as soon as they
figure out how many parking spots they actually need, we can move forward.
