Subject: Update: Cubic Yard of Million Flower Compost on the Way to NYC For Garden Renewal Ceremony

Sept '01: The Liberty Community Garden in Battery Park City is mostly obliterated when the garden is used as a staging area by rescue and clean up trucks after 9-11. 
Today, Sunday, Sept 22, 2002: P-Patch gardeners in Seattle filled each of 32 clam and oyster boxes with 40-50 lbs of the Million Flower Compost, made by hundreds of volunteers at the Interbay P-Patch from one million flowers brought by 75,000 people to the Seattle Center Flower Vigil after September 11, 2001.   P-Patch gardener David Smead delivered the boxes to Taylor Shellfish Farms  in Shelton WA today as the first leg of the compost's  imminent historic cross country journey.
The cubic yard plus of Million Flower Compost, currently sitting on a pallet in the Taylor plant, will soon be loaded into an LD3 container for air shipment to New York's John F Kennedy airport. Taylor Shellfish Farms has generously donated the freight costs to deliver the Million Flower Compost to New York. At the Liberty Community Garden Rededication Ceremony 11:00 am to noon, Saturday, September 28th in Battery Park City in lower Manhattan, a delegation  from Seattle including Seattle City Councilmember Richard Conlin, poet Ann Hursey, singer/songwriter John Van Amerongen and Mason  Shigenaka, age 7, from the John Sanford International School, will present the Million Flower Compost, as a metaphor of renewal of the earth as well as the human spirit, to the Liberty Community Garden on behalf of the Seattle P-Patch Community and the City of Seattle.
