I. I know that you've been teaching your undergraduates about community 
gardens and gardening for a long time. 

For Seattle, or any other place where there are community gardens in the US 
and Canada, you would be best to go to the ACGA website garden links  page 
and follow the garden program links by state:  <A 
HREF="http://www.communitygarden.org/";>American Community Gardening 
Association</A> . 

You may want to contact P-Patch, the City of Seattle's exemplary community 
gardening program:

II.   This coming Saturday, March 15, 2003, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, the 
22nd Annual "Making Brooklyn Bloom - Lets Garden Again! : Practical 
Techniques for Growing Gardens in Your Neighborhood" will be welcoming 
community gardeners,  back yard gardeners, neighborhood and community 
greening advocates to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. 

This free conference is being run under the aegis of  the BBG's Brooklyn 
Greenbridge which ACGA President Ellen Kirby runs as her day job.

Featured Speaker: Pat Lanza, the author of "Lasagna Gardening" is discussing 
the soil building method explained in her book. 

Other topics include: "Starting with Seeds," , "Review of Gardening Basics," 
"Building the Membership in Your Community Garden or Block Association," 
"Building Your Own Lasagna Garden in NYC," "Intelligent Design - Guidelines 
to Creating Your Dream Garden," "How to Get Trees in Every Garden for 2003 
Arbor Day," "Pruning Tips for Shrubs and Trees in Your Garden," "Grass 
Recycling: The Way to Save Time and Money for a Greener Lawn," "Theme Gardens 
with Children, " which are all taught by experts from the BBG or the NYC 
greening community.

Oh yeah, and.. I'll be manning the ACGA table, hustling memberships, and 
doing a show and tell called "The American Community Gardening Association: 
Resources That Can Help Your Garden Grow."

Best wishes,
Adam Honigman

 I will be visiting the Seattle area between March 19 and 21 and would love 
to learn more about their wonderful community garden and composting systems.
