Re: need ideas for securing community garden land

This is the website of the Trust for Public Land ("TPL"). Please go to the 
TPL site below,  read the general information and then go to the California 
link, which shows some of the work TPL has done in the Los Angeles area. 
<A HREF="http://www.tpl.org/index.cfm";>Trust for Public Land</A>  . 

TPL is a big player, so I'd suggest that you have documentation of the work 
you have done on your garden for the last 25 years (press clippings, 
agreements with the land owner, everything) in a neat portfolio or in 
scannable form to send to them as an E-mail attachment.  Be as complete as 
possible, listing your supporters, political and otherwise.  Pictures tell a 
million words -use them. 

While TPL is known for acquiring plots of land the size of national forests, 
it has also been instrumental in saving and preserving NYC community gardens. 
TPL was extraordinarily helpful in the struggle to preserve The Clinton 
Community Garden many years ago.  With your garden's 25 year history of 
service to community, you should contact them directly.

Also, should TPL pass ( these are lousy economic times) you will have your 
ducks in a row to show to other greening groups and city agencies.

Good luck,
Adam Honigman,
