>Subject: Q/Insurance, Funding & Networking in Canada
>I am looking for direction in the following three areas specific to
>Canada: insurance, funding and networking.
>1.INSURANCE How have Canadian groups addressed insurance issues for
>community gardens? Can you recomend a company and/or brokerage that
>specializes in providing liability insurance for community gardens? Is
>there a group policy available through an organization(s)? What price
>range is reasonable? Any ideas for additional info that should be
>explored prior to obtaining insurance?
>2. FUNDING Any ideas on alternative funding sources to NPO's and
>gov.'greening' sources (perhaps through Fed. science & technology
>programs, nutrition/health, NGO's, etc.) that may be avenues to explore?
>:-) Actually, come to think of it, any sources of potential funding
>would be appreciated (not being one to limit my options!) Funding source
>ideas for anything from infrastructure through to provision of
>continuing education courses/materials would be appreciated.
>3. NETWORKING Networking/info links would be most appreciated. IE
>listservers, Canadian Associations, etc. What WWW links have you found
>the most useful? What Associations? Journals? etc.
> I hope that some folks out there may hold one or two keys to these
>various questions and through you all maybe set me off in the right
> I will summarize the replies back to the list(s) should people
>indicate they would want this.
>Thank you in advance.
