just went to your website.
it is great.
And great that you are here in our community!

used to garden but with three kids it is now on a low burner.
nice to meet you

Hi Birgitta - thanks for visiting my site.
I have been spending most of my time with adults these days (bringing the child back into adult life). But I know people who work with kids. Maybe in the future...

Are you Christy of Christy+Andrew? I think I talked to you about my compost-bin-turned-worm-bin at BM2007... I signed up for your gardnerd mailing list. Hope to learn some tips! Cya!

Hi Christy,
James Brennan suggested I contact you about my desire to start another community garden in the area. If you have any ideas of who to talk to, where to do it, or if you already have something going in this vein, please let me know.

Thanks for getting back to me. I have left a message for David King already, but would love to be in touch with anyone else you think may be helpful in me getting something like this off the ground. I plan on going to some community council meetings to see if there is any money available for starting another project, as well as finding out about the possibility of some empty lots off of Inglewood. Any information is well appreciated!
