Hi, all,

Kudos to Marti Bjornson for a an excellent survey of
community garden programs in the US and Canada, with a
clear 'hook' for Park and Recreation Departments, that
appears as the cover story in the latest issue of Park
& Recreation. It's a terrific resource, especially in
places like Charlotte where our best hope for
expanding city-wide is through Park and  Recreation.

Adam, thanks for posting the url. Anyone know an easy
way to get hard copies?

Great job!

P.S.  worked a Growing Communities workshop in
Richmond, VA on Friday and Saturday with a terrific
group of attendees (Betsy Johnson and Eric Palowski of
Cleveland were lead trainers). We were right next to
the church where Patrick Henry proclaimed "Give me
liberty, or give me death!" In the middle of the
Friday workshop, who should stride in past the flip
charts but Patrick Henry himself, in period dress.
Turns out they do a reenactment of the speech daily.
