Community Gardens Intro: Sites are shown from many popular geographic areas, such that different communities can see each other’s work, borrowing good ideas from each other and perhaps networking together.

DL 2011 2013: Replacement: http://www.examiner.com/article/san-ramon-community-gardens-diy-fence-project }how to build a community garden. But we also found: http://tokyo-diy-gardening.org/category/garden-types/community-gardening/ }almost all photos, and DIY steps for community gardens, from one of the most crowded cities in the world, Tokyo. http://www.attra.org/attra-pub/csa.html }more formal description with history of CSA farms. CSA=Community Supported Agriculture. www.bridewellorganicgardens.co.uk/ }more of the virtues and uses of Community Garden. www.burlingtongardens.org/Vermont_Community_Gardens.html }the Burlington, Vermont pleasant site.

DL 2011 This link, sadly, is down, and searching the site yields no info on where/how to obtain non-GMO seeds. Update 2012: http://www.arkinstitute.com/ }We found this site as a good replacement. Clean, simple site, nice colors, homepage a little crowded. “We offer only the cleanest 100% non-hybrid, non-GMO, chemical free produce seed, to allow you to plant your own gardens, feed your families and friends, and then harvest your seed to save for use the following planting season.”communitygardensasappleseeds.info/_wsn/page3.html }service site for Community Garden.

Recommended, for example, if you’re a gardener and want to become involved with local food distribution. http://eldoradoheirloomseeds.com/Home_Page.html }a good site for finding and ordering heirloom vegetable. Clean site, color photos of products. About the annoying voiceover on the home page: use Zap to turn that off. If you don’t have the script for that, go to https://www.squarefree.com/bookmarklets/pagedata.html }and follow the steps to add these bookmarks to your browser. We don’t know for sure if these heirloom seeds are non-GMO, but that seems to be implied. http://www.evergreen.ca/en/programs/communities/community-development/food-gardens-toronto.sn }community food gardens in Toronto, Canada. Clean, simple site.

The point of most community gardens is to provide healthy, safe food, but there are many other kinds of garden sites on the web. These links are for community food gardens. http://greennetchicago.org/gardens/community-gardens }Chicago's Community Garden and "green-net", which shows what other communities can do.http://www.greenpeople.org/community-supported-agriculture.cfm }search by state of zip code for CSA in your area.

Over 600 families later, we are still sharing purchases with old as well as new friends. While providing food is the way we make our living, ours is a personal mission to provide folks with whatever service it takes to help them along the road to a wholesome and healthy diet. We support local agriculture and enterprise either directly in the buying club or indirectly through networking to help members and local enterprises find one another.http://www.mrsc.org/subjects/parks/comgarden.aspx }another intro site for community gardens and CSA. “The focus of this page is to provide background resources for Washington local government policy makers on opportunities to enhance sustainability by encouraging gardening in urban settings.” Good overview and links. www.mtnstatesgroup.org/Community/CSA.htm }there's also Community Supported Agriculture.

If you want to sterilize it, dip it in boiling water, then let it cool and apply to minor wound. Comfrey is known for its healing qualities. It was referred to as "Knitbone" traditionally, as it is known for knitting together tissues and promoting cell growth. It was also referred to as "Bruisewort" as it is known to reduce swelling and bruising when applied to injuries as a poultice or compress. Leaves in poultices and compresses have been applied to varicose veins and arthritic joints, as well as diaper rash. Warm, smashed or bruised leaves applied to an inflamed injury are said to help reduce swelling and  bruising, as well as reduce scarring. www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/ppatch/links.htm }shows all "p-patch" Community Garden, with a very thorough and complete linklist for Community Gardeners.

Co-ops. Intro: Sites are shown from many popular geographic areas, such that different communities can see each other’s work, borrowing good ideas from each othersand perhaps networking their areas together. Usually one site per geographic areais all that is shown. Some of these co-ops are more community-active, some aremore politically-active, etc., some are simpler. We have avoided the big business health food stores, since there is something inappropriate about them; think of, say, Whole Foods. Note: “coop” denotes the extant term “coop”, i.e., a place where chickens live. A co-operative enterprise is abbreviated “co-op”, that is, with the hyphen. www.albertagrocery.coop/index.html }nice list of sister-organizations.

Site partly under construction. 2011 Update: Their site is finished and it is nicely organized. A good co-op. www.communityfood.coop/ }from Bellingham, Wa, another pleasant website.
