Subject: [cg] garden research

Hi Julie,

I just finished my MA thesis on this topic for my Geography degree.  I
worked  with Chicago gardens and residents.  If you want to check it
out, you can go to http://akempson.net/jenny_urbangardenresearch .
Also, if you need any help otherwise, I can surely share any knowledge
that I have with you. While I was in the process of my thesis, I went
to the ACGA conference and it proved to be helpful, at least in ways
of hooking me up with others doing research and the community garden
communtiy.

Good luck..
take care,
Jenny Hampton

Subject: [cg] Tyvec for separation from contaminated ground?

Thanks to all on this lively newsgroup for the fascinating
discussions,

    Pretty new here myself, so please excuse if this one has been
answered before.

    Does anyone know if Tyvec, the DuPont wind-proofing house
wrap, would be both sufficient & safe to use as a barrier under
raised beds where the urban soil below has lead dust or other
contaminants?  Would Tyvec leach its own chemical contaminants
into the food?

Thank you for any information you may have,
Napi

Subject: [cg] LINK TV and the Sierra Club presents "Rats to Roses", July 13
 and 27

Hi All!

My name is Kate Hoin and I am an intern with the Sierra Club's 
Environmental Partnerships program working out of Washington, D.C.  I'm 
writing to announce the airing of "Rats to Roses", a film by Tamra Raven 
acquired by  Sierra Club Chronicles and Brave New Films. "Rats to Roses" 
tells the story of community gardens in New York City, and their struggle 
to survive in the face of urban development. 

Hosted by Daryl Hannah, Sierra Club Chronicles is a monthly TV series 
capturing seven David vs. Goliath stories: the dramatic efforts of 
committed individuals across the country working to protect the health of 
their environment and communities.  "Rats to Roses" will air July 13th and 
27th on Link TV (DIRECTV channel 375 and Dish Network channel 9410). 

Sierra Club also invites you to organize a house party to show the film, 
either on the original air date, or anytime you want with a free DVD 
ordered from the Sierra Club website.  This is a great way to spread the 
word to your community!  For more information or to learn how to set up a 
house party of your own, please visit: http://sierraclubtv.org/. 

I really encourage you all to see this fantastic film and to use it to 
spread the word about the benefits of community gardening (which I'm sure 
you all know very well).  If any particular group has any questions or 
would like to become more involved in the showing of this film, please 
feel free to contact me.  And if anyone has any questions at all, of 
course please ask!  I would love to hear from you! 

Thanks so much!

Subject: [cg] ACGA Website Link to Community Garden Studies and New Briefs

 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

Subject: [cg] Thank You! Your Work Is Turning the Tide at the Bellevue
 Sobriety Garden

Friends,

Thank you for your support of the Bellevue Hosptial Sobriety Garden in NYC.
Your e-mails, letters of support, telephone calls to the legislators listed on
our website seems to be getting the attention of the powers that be:  The
healing, therapeutic Bellevue Sobriety Garden cannot be destroyed or
diminished.

The battle ain't over at the Bellevue Sobriety Garden in Manhattan, but your
help and emails are starting to turn the tide. I'm cautiously optimistic,
here.

Please keep your phone calls, e-mails and snail-mail missives coming. The tide
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:

http://www.runninginterference.com/index.htm
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.

"Community Gardening is 50% gardening and 100% politics."

Best regards,
Adam Honigman
Bellevue Sobriety Garden

Subject:Meeting on Sobriety Garden
Date:Fri, 30 Jun 2006 10:09:47 -0400

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.
