Update from New Yorkers for Parks on Budget & Garden Issues

  • Subject: [cg] Update from New Yorkers for Parks on Budget & Garden Issues
  • From: "Honigman, Adam" <Adam.Honigman@Bowne.com>

Friends,

New Yorkers for Parks, a mainstream NYC Parks political advocacy
organization ( formerly Parks 2001)has come out in support for Intro 206 -
the NYC Council Greenthumb Garden Bill. I am forwarding it to you as an
example of how garden advocacy works with a mainstream organization.

New Yorkers for Parks is one of the  co-sponsors of the ACGA conference in
July.
