Online expert, enliven your park/gardens with campfires or community brickovens, now

Grassroots leader - Jutta Mason - will advocate the benefits of fires in
parks as she takes up the role of online expert and conference speaker in
New York this summer.

Author of Cooking with Fire in Public Space, Mason is the guest of Project
for Public Spaces, the New York-based nonprofit.  Her contribution is
two-fold: in June she will join ‘Ask the Expert’ to share her knowledge and
ideas with park enthusiasts on the PPS website, Urban Parks Online
(http://urbanparks.pps.org).  In July she will be guest speaker at their
conference, Great Parks, Great Cities.

Mason began cooking over campfires in 1993 with a group of young "regulars"
at Dufferin Grove Park in Toronto.  Two years later, they built a wood-fired
bread oven, which became so popular that another was added in 2000. The
program has dramatically transformed the usage and sociability of the park.

Urban Parks Online is the premier resource for park enthusiasts across the
US, thanks to a $150,000 grant from the Wallace-Reader’s Digest Funds.
The aim is to get 10,000 members signed up to the site by 2005.

The Great Parks, Great Cities conference will be held in New York City,
July 28 –31, 2001.

The winners of the Great Parks, Great Cities 2001 Award will be announced at
the conference.  The awards are being initiated by Project for Public Spaces
to acknowledge that an attractive, active, well-functioning public space can
jumpstart the comeback of a community – from a small suburban or rural town
to a highly urbanized city
