Two Community Gardens Bills in Congress

We got an email from a friend noting that two community

garden bills had been introduced in Congress. We pass along their plea here:

"One is a bill (HR 3225 - The Community Gardens Act) which creates a grant program to fund community gardens. Another is a resolution praising community gardens. If you want to voice your support for these, shoot your representative an email and either thank them if they are already a co-sponsor (list below) or ask them to co-sponsor HR 3225."

Sponsor: Jay Inslee (D-WA)

Cosponsors: Del. Madeleine Bordallo [D-GU]

Del. Donna Christensen [D-VI]

Del. Eleanor Norton [D-DC]

Rep. Earl Blumenauer [D-OR3]

Rep. André Carson [D-IN7]

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver [D-MO5]

Rep. John Conyers [D-MI14]

Rep. Donna Edwards [D-MD4]

Rep. Eliot Engel [D-NY17]

Rep. Raul Grijalva [D-AZ7]

Rep. Marcy Kaptur [D-OH9]

Rep. Barbara Lee [D-CA9]

Rep. Carolyn Maloney [D-NY14]

Rep. Doris Matsui [D-CA5]
