ASK A MASTER GARDENER-AT THE L.A. COUNTY FAIR!
	Wonder why your tomatoes are so tiny, or there are so few of them?
Or when to start lettuce seeds so you can harvest all winter long (and avoid
those $1/head prices)?  Or, maybe you're not sure when to prune your roses
for lots of color next year.
	Los Angeles County Master Gardeners know the answers.  They've had
years of experience, and they've learned from University of California
experts.  
	You can call the Los Angeles County Master Gardener Phone Helpline
anytime at (323) 260-3238, and leave a message.  Or, email your question to

 Organic community garden overflows

By GWEN ALBERS
Western News Reporter
Two Libby women with help from friends, neighbors and co-workers have
cultivated a community garden overflowing with vegetables and flowers.

It all started when retired carpenter Bill Johnson in April moved to a home
in Northwood. The yard at one time had a garden, which Johnson's daughter,
Paula Schauss, and her co-worker, Diane Rode, wanted to resurrect.

"What's funny is neither of us had a place for a garden, but when my dad
found this place, I went to Diane and said, 'I found your garden,'" said
Schauss.

"It's been a great year," Rode added. "We got a real early start and didn't
get hailed on."

They couldn't have done it without help from many including Schauss' sister,
Gloria Byrnes, and Johnson, who grew up on a farm in Wisconsin during the
Depression. Rode had her own expertise; she once managed an organic produce
department in Helena.

"We work full-time and it was a long process to get it planted," said
Schauss, who like Rode is an administrative support employee for CDM. CDM is
one of the contractors hired by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for
the multi-million dollar asbestos cleanup in Libby.

"We inherited an asparagus patch," Rode said. "It took Paula and I five days
to weed it."

A neighbor graciously offered to rototill the 125- by 30-foot plot, while a
local farmer donated manure for fertilizer. Another friend donated poles for
building a high enough, deer-proof fence.

"It all turned out so beautiful," Rode said. "We wanted a beautiful garden.
With the river and Cabinet Mountains, it's one of the most beautiful
gardens."

The organically grown garden has not been treated with pesticides or
chemicals - just manure from cows and mink. The women planted Napa cabbage
to trap insects.

"The bugs love it and ate that and not everything else around it," Rode
said.

The garden has carrots, spinach, lettuce, beets, turnips, peas, broccoli,
onions, cantaloupe and watermelon. The are three varieties of kale, five
varieties of Swiss chard, eight types of summer squash, six varieties of
winter squash and green beans, and numerous herbs.

To brighten up the garden, a mix of perennial flowers with annuals were
planted. They also created a prayer wheel with flowers.

"This is a place where you can give thanks to all," Rode said. "You can come
in the middle and give thanks to people we know, people who are ill. It's a
special place."

The gardeners give away a lot of their produce and flowers.

"We have friends who come and pick," Rode said.

On Wednesday nights, they have garden dinners.

"We pick from the garden and make our meals," Schauss said.

THANKS to everyone who responded on or off the list.  lots of good ideas...
i'm going to incorporate as many of them into my design as i possibly can.

one observation that i'd like to share with everyone about participating in
the big garden shows around the country... on the surface it's a great way
to
contact the general gardening public.  on a deeper level it's quite an
experience to work side by side with other serious horticultural
organizations
in your city and region.  it puts community gardeners right in with big
universities and environmental organizations as equals (for the run of the
show at least).  there are lots of networking opportunities with
philanthropists and introductions to people inside the nursery and landscape
trade that can pay off later.

also, the shows are usually during the winter when you're eager to garden
but
the soil is too cold.  there's nothing like building your ideal community
garden in the middle of february and having thousands of people to share it
with.  OK, now it sounds like i'm trying to talk myself into this.

Ladies and gents,

I did not have the chance to say that it's good to hear of all the  
things you speak of on this list serve.    In this I felt like  
contributing in hopes that it might help someone somewhere  - maybe  
for arguing for more community gardens?

I've done a small side research project in addition to my main  
project report on urban agriculture on food miles in Kingston,  
Ontario, Canada.  In addition, the link to the companion study from  
Waterloo, Ontario is within it.

Feel free to download it from:  http://qlink.queensu.ca/~0sol/

Harvest Festival


When:  *Friday September 8th, 4:00 p.m to Dusk*

Where: * New Start Community Garden *(on Mogollon St. b/w Cherry and Dale
near Downtown Flagstaff)

What:  *Food from the Garden, Recognition of this summer's FYG participants
and supporters, Live Art, Hip Hop, DJ's, Slideshow, *

Who:  *2006 Flagstaff Youth Gardens program;  **Sponsored by Native
Movement, Flagstaff Foodlink, Project New Start*


Family and Friends,

You are invited to help us celebrate the first harvest from Flagstaff's
newest youth garden on the site of the New Start School.

The Harvest Festival is the culmination of work that began last May with
high school students at Project New Start.  At the end of the school year,
Flagstaff Foodlink hired five students to continue working in the gardens
through the summer.  As a way to allow more of the community to participate,
the program was then joined by Native Movement who hired on five Youth of
the Peaks who united with the New Start students to create this summer's
Flagstaff Youth Gardens interns.  During the course of the summer, the youth
worked four days a week building gardens from scratch, planting fruit trees,
perennial food and medicine plants, built a cob bread oven, and, with the
help of the Indigenous Youth Alliance from Phoenix, painted several murals
that are now on display at the New Start Garden.  Also, the youth
implemented an edible/medicinal landscape at the Theatrikos Theater Company
in downtown Flagstaff.

At it's core, the intention of the gardens has been to engage area youth in
the process of learning how to provide healthy food for their families and
community.  But as we began working in the gardens, it became clear that it
was not just about growing food, it was about creating a vision for what we
want our community to be. So in addition to the gardens, the murals and
community bread oven demonstrate that artistic expression, building, and
food production can be integrated to create community spaces where
everyone's interests and skills can be incorporated and appreciated...

We hope you can come help us celebrate our first harvest.  Food will be
provided from the garden, and a local restaurant will be baking pizza in the
bread oven.  Bring a dish to share if possible.  You can contact me with any
questions, or inquiries on how you can help out.

With Respect,

Brett Ramey

Looks like a great study - there's an ACGA group that's collecting Community
Garden research for the purpose of arguing for community gardens - a quick

 This is exactly the kind of public service announcement that we should all
have a chance to read on the ACGA listserv as part of the content mix. 
 
These are great for newbies to read as a way to get ideas on how to set up
their promotional, "bring the community in," community garden parties that
build up gardener morale while introducing non-gardeners in their
neighborhoods to their gardens. 
 
And it gives old timers hope that our community gardening "thing," (this
thing of ours, as "La Cosa Nostra," literally translates from the Italian)
is spreading and thriving - thousands of miles away from our home gardens. 
 
Thank you Brett for sharing this with us!

SOUTHWARK/QUEEN VILLAGE COMMUNITY GARDEN will be celebrating its 30th
year of growing together on September 30, 2006.

 From 11 AM to 2 PM there will be an open house with light refreshments
prepared and served by the gardeners. Everyone is invited to join us
for garden tours and conversation.

Check out our easy do it watering system and our solar electric system
for powering our tools and even some lighting as well as the wide
variety of herbs, vegetables, fruit and flowers grown by our 70
community gardeners.

All of our many supporters from Mayor Street and Governor Rendell to
Senator Specter and members of city council and the Pennsylvania
legislature have been invited. (We wouldnt be here were it not for
them.) Visitors might even be able to  grab them for a  brief private
conversation.

If people want to hang around for more substantial food, our 30th
ANNUAL BARBECUE with a whole roast pig and all manner of vegetarian
side dishes will begin at 2 PM. Barby tickets are $10 for grown-ups and
$5 for kids under 12.

If you're in the neighborhood, do come by!

Greetings!
Hope you all had a great summer...still 21 days left!
I meant to send you this earlier but I had some technical difficulties
sending
emails
from this account in Europe for the past couple of weeks.
Thanks to Jon Crow for the design and production of the enclosed newsletter.
Take
time to read it. Most likely, it will answer the many questions you have
about
New
York City Community Gardens.

A note from Haja Worley,
New York City Community Gardens Coalition

Dear Gardeners/Guardians:

I hope you will appreciate the Forum Report, and that it will inspire ideas
and
plans as we go forward. The 2006 Community Gardeners Forum is an example of
just
how far the community garden movement has come. The questions asked and
issues
explored are indicators of all weCB"Cb,Cb"ve accomplished as well as
all
that lies ahead
of us.

We each need to take into account how extraordinarily valuable community
gardens
are to the social, environmental, and economic fabric of this city. As we
face
politicians and policy makers it is critical that we know ourselves not only
as
CB"Cb,CEgardeners,CB"Cb,CB but as guardians of the land; we are
grassroots developers. Our
contribution to our cityCB"Cb,Cb"s infrastructure is huge. If one were
to
assign a dollar
amount to all the CB"Cb,CEcommunity developmentCB"Cb,CB we as
gardeners have accomplished,
and the impact we have had on the development and maintenance of the
CB"Cb,CEurban forest,CB"Cb,CB
the figure would be staggering.

Our challenge, as we go forward, is to arm ourselves with the history of our
achievements
and the numerous ways in which we have positively impacted our neighborhoods
and
the city at large. Unity is key to our future success. We need to work
toward
solidifying policies and building legislation that will secure our existance
and
recognize the magnitude of our contributions.

Please help us prepare for the 2007 Community Gardeners Forum. Remember that
the
agreement between the City of New York and the State Attorney General
expires
in
2010. We should take advantage of the time we have to ensure our permanence.
The
fact that many gardens are under the auspices of Parks and Recreation does
not
in
itself guarantee their permanence. As evidenced in the Bronx,
CB"Cb,CEeminent domainCB"Cb,CB
is being used to take over parkland for a new Yankee Stadium, and a water
filtration
plant is being imposed on Van Cortlandt Park

There is much to do. I invite you to work with us; stay in touch; come to
meetings
and other events. Give us your feedback!

Keep it green!

Captivity!!!!

Congratulations Libby!!!!
 
Thirty Years!!! What an achievement.  Thanks for showing us all that it can
be done! And it's great that you've invited and acknowledged the support
you've had from your local elected officials from both sides of the aisle. 
 
Community gardens ARE  a baby that politicians of both parties should kiss,
and support with legislative support and maybe a few grants....hint, hint.  
 
Best regards,
Adam Honigman

SOUTHWARK/QUEEN VILLAGE COMMUNITY GARDEN will be celebrating its 30th
year of growing together on September 30, 2006.

 From 11 AM to 2 PM there will be an open house with light refreshments
prepared and served by the gardeners. Everyone is invited to join us
for garden tours and conversation.

Check out our easy do it watering system and our solar electric system
for powering our tools and even some lighting as well as the wide
variety of herbs, vegetables, fruit and flowers grown by our 70
community gardeners.

All of our many supporters from Mayor Street and Governor Rendell to
Senator Specter and members of city council and the Pennsylvania
legislature have been invited. (We wouldnt be here were it not for
them.) Visitors might even be able to  grab them for a  brief private
conversation.

If people want to hang around for more substantial food, our 30th
ANNUAL BARBECUE with a whole roast pig and all manner of vegetarian
side dishes will begin at 2 PM. Barby tickets are $10 for grown-ups and
$5 for kids under 12.

If you're in the neighborhood, do come by!
