Dear Gardeners,

We had a very productive meeting today despite the early clouds. Thank you to all who participated; and it was nice to have such a healthy turnout of 28 gardeners, not including the beautiful Keohane girls who cleaned up countless piles of pulled weeds.

Anna Lise Jensen will be hosting a meeting with the artisit Norbert Attard Monday evening (Sept 13) from 6 to 7 pm in the hopes of deciding on an art project to install in our garden. Anna Lise and Mr. Attard are hoping for some collaboration with the gardeners and would very much like to have some creative input from our community. And and all who are able to attend are encouraged to do so. Mr. Attard will only be in the city for a week and is very keen on installing a piece in the garden. We will try to have a proposal emailed to everyone by Tuesday in order to get a vote in favor or not with enough time for the artist to actually install his work. You can view his website at http://www.norbertattard.com/biography.pdf

Also, a flea market fundraiser has been organized by some friends and neighbors of the two families affected by the recent fire. It will be at the garden next Saturday the 18th from 11 to 6. Please feel free to bring baked goods and/or items to sell, or contact Lillian Jeanpierre for more information at bjorglil@peoplere.com. We did collect contributions for Christine Barrow at the meeting today. Anyone who was unable to contribute and still wishes to do so can mail directly to Christine at 635 Central Park West, #6G.

Mary Kelly
for the steering committee

  1. the sound system for your event 9/18 is out of control. i live down the street and have had to listen to a man’s booming voice all day. this is very unneighborly and i can’t imagine why someone hasn’t adjusted the volume or asked this man to speak in a more normal voice by now. please keep your events within the scope of your garden and not blasting the whole neighborhood in the future.
