Successful Spring Clean-Up - Community Garden Software Query

  • Subject: [cg] Successful Spring Clean-Up - Community Garden Software Query
  • From: Adam36055@aol.com
  • Date: Sun, 1 May 2005 17:10:11 EDT

Friends, 

Again, this is for newbies who want to see how an established old garden 
manages and acknowledges volunteer work.  This e-mail went out to about a few 
thousand people in our 5,000 keyholder e-mail database which sometimes includes 
foundation funders, community board members and elected officials we like or 
want to influence. 

Joseph Andorfer, the author of this e-mail is the volunteer Clinton Community 
Garden plot coordinator.  

This spring, Joseph  been a key worker on our new "compost/storage condo," 
area  and is in the process of creating a Community Garden software programming 
package that includes garden mapping by plot, record keeping, donor records 
and other information, both plant and animal ( and that includes our birds, bees 
and gardeners) useful to the running of a busy community garden run 
exclusively by volunteers.

Joseph Andorfer is probably the best computer programmer, IT specialist I've 
known who is also a dedicated community gardener. I greet  Joseph jokingly  
as, "my son!" acknowedging my delight that he is now another "lifer," in this 
strange thing we call community gardening.  In an 26 year old community garden, 
we welcome all signs of continuity like the first crocuses of spring. His 
wife, Linda is another lifer - a gift. 

Please forward your practical ideas on what a good, "from the ground up," 
community gardening program should include in it's bundle of features. 

Thanking you in advance for your cooperation, 
Adam Honigman
Volunteer, 
Clinton Community Garden
NYC

A huge "thank you" goes out to the following people for showing up (in some
cases VERY early) yesterday to help at the Spring Clean-Up:  Tony Belgrave,
Cindy Clark, Linda Dwyer, Eve Harmon, Adam Honigman, John Keenan, Carol
Lipnik, Debbie Mullins, Miki Orihara, Andy Padian (and thanks, Andy for the
grilled chicken!), Neil Schettler, Nancy Severance, Steve Roylance, Susan
Skeels Joshua Spahn, Beth Weinstein, Noel Isaac, Bruce Coleman, John
Sheridan and two of our new plotholders this season John Ward and Loretta
Skeddle (please excuse me for any omissions or misspellings).

Thanks to the hard work of these few there are now soil amendments for
everyone (piled atop our new composting system).  You'll also notice many of
the common areas of the garden are in great shape for our new growing
season.  Thanks again to these gardeners for their tireless work in less
than ideal weather conditions.

Also, plants are available for your plots.  They were placed in the patio
area -- though they may be gone by the time you get this e-mail.  There are
also packets of seeds in the tool shed for everyone to use in their plots.

Enjoy the season!

Joseph Andorfer
Plot Coordinator
