RE: Linda Johnson's Artistic Statement in Portland. . .

A typo to note: The grant was for $7,500, not $70,000. The day a grass roots
garden gets $70,000...!!
A note about the garden: why in the heck install it this year only to
dismantle it in April?

> it's no longer there!
> Check out "Living on Earth"'s website at www.loe.org for more details.
