Garden Doc Airdates

Starting in about one month, PBS TV stations will begin broadcasting the 
video documentary "A Lot in Common," which features a promotional tag for ACGA at 
the end of each program.  As of today the show has been booked in the 20 
markets listed below, and at least 15 more stations are seriously considering it, 
including WNET New York, KCET Los Angeles, and WETA Washington, D.C., which 
have contacted me for additional viewing copies.  I will update the listserve 
periodically as more stations book in.

This is a tremendous step and I want to say thank you so much to all of the 
ACGA members who have helped convince their PBS stations to broadcast this 
touching saga of life in one community garden in Berkeley, California (more info 
at www.ALotinCommon.com).  I hope this good news might persuade those who have 
been considering contacting their own local PBS stations to express interest 
in the show, to get off the ol' compost pile and make the call. This is a 
strategy that has now proven effective, and can be beneficial to local gardening 
groups as a way to raise publicity about what is going on with gardening in 
their area.  By popular demand, a satellite re-feed of the program has been 
scheduled for Friday 3/19, 1200-1300ET/Channel 513, so sooner is better for 
contacting program managers.

As ever, please don't hesitate to e-mail or call for contact information at 
your stations (if you don't see them below!) and for a form letter for you to 
personalize and send in.  Acting this month will allow programmers to schedule 
the broadcast for June, when gardens are really coming into their own.  Many 
thanks again, Rick Bacigalupi  415-282-0340  ALotinCommon@aol.com
