Community Greening Review

ACGA's annual "Community Greening Review" should be in ACGA
members' mailboxes within the week!  This year's theme article
"Making Policy: Steps Beyond the Physical Garden" is a wonderful
overview of the necessity for all community garden programs and
supporters to engage in the political process in order to get 
widespread support for community gardens.  It summarizes municipal 
policies that established cg programs in several jurisdications around the 
country.  Companion peices to this article include "Elements 
to Include in a Community Garden Ordinance" by U Baltimore
Law Professor Jane Schukoske and "How to Lobby Successfully"
by David Arthur and Tricia Markwood who gave keynotes at the
ACGA conference in Philadelphia last fall.  If it sounds like its
not about gardening anymore...it ain't!!

An additional piece is the the interview with Secretary of Ag
Dan Glickman about his cg initiative as well as Millenium Green.
Last but not least, an excellent overivew of the varied and interesting
greening activities in Hot-lanta is featured in preparation for this 
years fall conference!!

ACGA members recieve one copy of this publication with your 
membership.  If you would like a copy, please join ACGA and support
community gardening on a wider scale.  Individual membership
costs $25..!!
