{Disarmed} The Mysteries of Life in NYC - No Master GardenerProgram

 Dear Mr. Feris,

Thank you for sharing this information from the Rutgers Coopertive Extension.
I'm delighted to hear of the health of this fine NJ Master gardener program.
In New Jersey....

There are great mysteries to life in the Big Apple. One is why you can wait
for an hour for a MTA Number 11 Amsterdam avenue bus, and have 4 come
immediately together, like they're a caravan....

Another mystery is why, in the City of NY,  with a population of over eight
million souls , with hundreds of square miles of parks, thousands of parks
volunteers and  over 500-600 community gardens, there is  no Master Gardener
Program for adult citizen gardener volunteers.

This mystery is further compounded by the fact that we DO have a NYS/Cornell
Agricultural Extension office just steps from the Empire State building, in
very expensive office space,

Cornell University Cooperative Extension-NYC Program
 16 E 34th Street; 8th Floor
 New York, NY 10016
 (212) 340-2962
 FAX (121) 340-2908

and no Master Gardener program. There is this really nice program called
"Garden Mosaics," that runs out of the Agricultural extension, but no
desperately needed Master Gardener program, like they have upstate, or in any
of the other 49 states of the union.

A mystery.....

Best regards,
Adam Honigman
