Title: RE: community_garden digest, Vol 1 #830 - 12 msgs
I have 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. 
Yes, 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. 
Even 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 far as a title, hmmm.....   The Community Gardening Journal             or
                                          Community Gardening Review                    or
                                          The Community Garden View

I like Sharon's idea.  The garden gate sounds too nursery rhyme-esque.
I want a name that reflects the political greening type thing.

How about
  GardenViewPoints: The Journal of the American Community Gardening Association

to reflect the wonderful aesthetics of gardening as well as the political
