I don't hear often from Barbara Brookhart at the Bryant Parks Restoration, but
when I do, it aways "counts."  I'd take her recommendation to look at this
magazine and the book it reviewed.

There was an interesting review of this book in the Urban Land magazine for
June.  It is a British bookb&..for centuries, the battle for the land has
been at the center of radical politics in this country.  There is a long
tradition that links earth and anarchy.

Vista - The Culture and Politics of Gardens, edited by Tim Richardson and Noel
Kingsbury, is a collection of 16 challenging and thought-provoking essays
about the meaning and philosophies of gardening. Such questions as: "Can a
garden ever be bnatural' if man has made it?" It is for the intellectual and
I found some essays, like Fernando Caruncho's bThe Spirit of the
Geometrician', quite heavy going. Much easier reading is Louisa Jones's essay
on the explosion of garden visiting in France.
For those of you with big gardens open to the public, and wondering what you
could be doing, this book will certainly stir up the brain cells. The editors
hope the book will be the first of a series, 191 pages, small format hardback,
no illustrations, $55.

Subject: [tb-cybergardens]: NYC: 1970's Community Garden Documentary 07.29.06
@7:30 PM

Each year, Rural Route brings a little bit of the country to the big city by
exhibiting rural-themed films and videos for New Yorkers at Anthology Film
Archives.  This yearbs festival includes everything from hillybillies to
horticulture and takes place from Friday, July 28 through Sunday, July 30.

On Saturday, July 29 at 7:30 PM, we will be screening GREEN STREETS, a rarely
exhibited documentary about New Yorkbs community gardening movement.  Shot
in the 1970s and 1980s, the film takes us back in time to revisit gardens that
have since been developed, and to visit now thriving gardens in their infancy.
Among these is the Bowery Houston Community Garden (now the Liz Christy
Garden).  Donald Loggins, a founding gardener of the Liz Christy Garden, will
be on hand to reminisce about these early gardens with director Maria De Luca,
and to discuss the current state of community green spaces.  We hope you will

Please help us promote this unique event by spreading the word to members of
your organization.
