Re: Question regarding Insurance for garden on State of NY property

While folks often respond privately to e-mails emanating from the listserv, - 
because this is such a sheer, "what, no insurance? the sky is falling," type 
crisis, I've gone public, in my usual tactless fashion, to get as much 
information to as many people in need of it as possible. 

There are 10,000 community gardens and a few hundred community garden 
organizations - in the spirit of the hundred monkeys in a room typing out the 
complete works of Shakespeare, eventually, in 25 years, I figure that one of us got 
it right. 

By sending this all points bulleting out in cyberspace, I hope that the 
person who did get it right e-mails us all back with the right answer. 

Best wishes, 
Adam Honigman
