It's my curse to be the soul of understanding where other people's points of
view are concerned, and I feel I must speak up in GreenThumb's defense. I
might agree they were negligent so-and-sos if they had not decided to assume the
community gardens under Parks" general city coverage for this period "between
carriers". Hopefully, this is in fact the case. I think no one wanted a
mass panic. I know I had to scrape myself off the ceiling when this first
came to light via your AGCA listserv exchange with the 6th & B gardener.
Also, I would have expected a cancellation notice from NOSC before a
cancellation announcement from GreenThumb. Frankly, the last word from NOSC was the
surcharge notice last year, then nothing. Though, who wants to be the bearer
of bad news?
Anyhow, I share your hope, Adam, if not your belief "that under Parks our
gardens will always be accessible to the communities we serve - not private
garden clubs functioning under the community garden label." Oooh, don't get me
