How, you might ask, do I join the network? It’s simple, shoot us an email at with a request.

    Growing organically, with my next door neighbor in my yard. Doubled the garden space this year, so long grass, and fenced it to keep my cats out. However, cats been opportunists, they found their way in this weekend. I plugged the hole with a dish drainer I found in the alley. Can’t bend down right now,to do these kinds of repairs. After the new knee on Tuesday, am looking forward to a day I can get on my knees in the garden and get the weeks up. Mulching with grass clippings helps a lot in keeping them down and the heat in the soil. Garlic will be ready to harvest soon. 5th St Back Alley Gardner

    Hi 1000New Gardens!

    I live in the city of bozeman and wondered if your organizaiton is here too? I am interested in gardening this year but my first problem is finding a filter to put on the spigot outside my house. My city water does not taste good enough for me to drink so don’t want to eat vegetables grown with it. I am still checking hardware stores for one, any ideas? Thank you replying!
