Greetings, I am wondering if anyone is involved in prison garden projects. I have worked in developing agroforestry and fruit tree training at a prison in Malawi, Africa, and am interested in continuing this work in the U.S. and abroad.
Any information would be greatly appreciated..
Thanks!

Suggest they veto any resolution for war, and that you, an American, support them it for it.  Maybe suggest that Bush is a one-termer, and point out that 500k more voted against him than for him, and/or any other good points to make, all of which I have overlooked in my hurry.

Dear Melanie,

I wholly understand your perspective about keeping the list on topic. This debate has been going on since I joined the list in 1995.

In my years as a professional community gardener, I find more and more how everything is interconnected, and that gardening both flowers and vegetables is very, very political.

By the very fact that one chooses to tend to nature in a garden is a transcendent move beyond the violent paradigm, politics and economics that seek to control and eradicate the natural world, and seeks to control your mind to do as they do. There's no way around that.

While I agree that this list mustn't go too far off topic, I invite you to deeply consider the relationships between gardening, particularly community gardening, and politics, including the White House's intention to attack Iraq.

Best regards,
Paco

Subject: [cg] We're number one

Hi gang-

Just received the monthly e-newsletter of the American Civic League.  This
month it promotes the Alliance for National Renewal’s “100 things you can do
for your community in a new century.”  In their excerpt from the list, guess
what was number 1.

Start a neighborhood community garden.

I think folks are catching on.  Anyway, if you would like to know more, go
to www.ncl.org/anr <http://www.ncl.org/anr/> .

Then ask the ACGA board to consider being one of the partners.  ANR lists a
bunch of resources for community builders, and they don’t have anything to
help people build gardens.  I think they need help.

Dear Paco,

I appreciate your invitation for consideration of the relationship between gardening and politics.  Having been a recipient of this list serve for roughly 6 years, I too have noticed this debate on presenting the listserve with off topic subjects, yet have never felt the need to respond in offense, until today.

I am not disagreeing with your viewpoint on gardening. I believe it is impossible to garden and not reflect on our species impact and innate connection with the world. Yet, I would invite consideration of the connection between the ability to be a "professional community gardener" and the stability and safety of the community in which you live that has been provided by the millions of American blood sacrifices paid in the "violent paradigm" to which you speak. In my opinion, our discussion isn’t so much about the relationship between community gardening and politics, as the relationship between community gardening and your (or others) political ideology.

I am curious to know whether those who intend to write in support of the French Ministry will also be supporting the French militaristic impact in Africa. Or for that matter their support of Mugabe (President of Zimbabwe) in the EU, who as we speak is destroying some of the largest African wildlife preserves? Just a thought…

All the best,
Melanie

Melanie - I appreciate your effort at clarifying what is objectionable about
the anti-war talk that has taken place - but I still don't understand from
this last note.  It sounds like you see the attention paid to war on Iraq is
narrow and maybe naive.

I have a short response to this question and it raises more questions: "I am
curious to know whether those who intend to write in support of the French
Ministry will also be supporting the French militaristic impact in Africa. Or
for that matter their support of Mugabe (President of Zimbabwe) in the EU,
who as we speak is destroying some of the largest African wildlife preserves?
Just a thought....."

I haven't heard anyone give a blanket embrace of any government.  Are you
thinking that we should not be forceful about the US gov't preparation to
invade Iraq because other gov'ts have grotesque issues to deal with?  Or that
supporting the French to stay aaway from Iraq is hypocritical because of its
own behavior in Africa?  Or is it the lack of attention to environmental
issues?  Laurie, Chicago
