      If you are reading this, then you know the power of
      organization and communication.

      Your neighborhood or other group can now take it online!
      The Urban Conservancy supports democratic control of
      neighborhoods by their residents. A critical part
      of democracy is the open sharing of communication.
      The Internet is a part of that communication process
      and can be a way of quickly and inexpensively sharing
      information related to your neighborhood.

      The Urban Conservancy has learned a number of lessons
      from our website and e-mail list which received the
      Gambit award for Best Activist Use of the Internet in
      2002. Now we want to share that knowledge with
      neighborhood groups and other organizations
      throughout the city for a price that is more
      economical than almost anywhere else.

      APRIL 8
      Women in Landscape Architecture Lecture
      Featured speaker, internationally acclaimed landscape
      architect Julie Bargmann, ASLA, will present “Toxic
      Beauties: The Art behind Landscape Architecture.”

      Julie Bargmann, with her on-going project, D.I.R.T.
      (Design Investigations Reclaiming Terrain), explores
      remediation and redevelopment work. While listening
      to clients, she embraces the need for education and
      interaction in all her rural and urban revitalization projects.
      She creatively invites communities to reinvest in the
      landscape around them. By venturing into Brownfield’s
      and hoping to regenerate what most would call urban
      decay, Bargmann has helped to rebuild both American
      and international revitalization of tired towns and vacated
      cities. In the Playhouse at Longue Vue House and
      Gardens at 6:00 p.m. followed by a reception. This event
      is open to the public. Admission to the lecture is free;

      The Urban Conservancy

      Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their
      reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform. Those
      who are really in earnest must be willing to be anything or nothing in
      the world’s estimation, and publicly and privately, in season and out,
      avow their sympathy with despised and persecuted ideas and their
      advocates, and bear the consequences.
      -Susan B. Anthony
