Title: RE: community_garden digest, Vol 1 #830 - 12 msgs
a problem promoting "political" views of a community gardening
organization as stated in the title called "GardenViewPoints". Yes, I
agree with many of you that politics plays an integral part in many of our
organizations, but we need to focus on "community gardening" oriented
topics. Recently, this listserv has been inundated with more
political emails than promoting its true purpose, "community
gardening". I understand our recent tragedy is the reason for this
type of dialog, but some of us have a problem leaning toward promoting more
political "viewpoints" not only on this listserv but also the ACGA newsletter
especially on a long term basis.
include the political aspects of conducting a community garden, but only as a
topic we have to deal with on occasion. There are more important issues to
deal with in conducting a such an operation.
in my neck of the woods, I have to deal with political powers that be.
Fortunately, it has been a rewarding experience for our community garden
(announcement forthcoming). I feel that if your community garden is
successful in terms of serving the community and you have the "community" behind
your gardening efforts, the political types can't ignore you.
as a title, hmmm..... The Community Gardening

I want a name that reflects the political
greening type thing.
