that it is so hard to determine if a message is from Minneapolis/St. Paul,
or out of state.   Is there some way to make this clear in the list preview
so those of us who wish can skip messages about seed give aways occuring
across the country?  Thanks...or maybe I just don't know how to read the
messages correctly?

> The Clinton Community Garden is located on West 48th Street, between 9th &
> 10th avenues, mid block, on the south side of the street.  Easy to find -

> adopted.

> NYC's community gardeners are  out there, keeping our community gardens

> Green Thumb, the community gardening organization that I'm involved with to,
> pretty please, disseminate   information on a key issue like insurance to its

> I don't like hearing about an adult matter like public space liability
> insurance the way teenagers used to learn about sex - via the grapevine.

> To not have received timely information on our community garden liability

> 
> As an individual, I like making Green Thumb look good - they gave me a plaque

> However,  timely communication on key safety information, like liability

> 
> As an individual, I got more timely events information from Lily's Bar, in

> on its liability insurance.
> 
> A matter of priorities, methinks.

> Again, speaking as an individual gardener, it seems that  community gardening

> gardeners 
> informed of issues essential to them, than we have managed to do here in NYC.
> And Gateway Greening and Seattle P-Patch  Publications manage to reach me, via
> snail mail, faster and in a more timely fashion than those from Green Thumb.
> 
> I know that we involved in community gardening in NYC can do better - and
> perhaps in the future, will.
> I know that Ms. Stone and NYC Parks Green Thumb  has worked very hard for
> NYC's community gardens and gardeners - this gardener, again, speaking as an
