GARDEN of the MONTH:
This is the twelfth in the series of photos of North American gardens. This month's garden is the Japanese Tea Garden at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco (http://www.jgarden.org/gardens.asp?ID=268), the venerable garden in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.



JGARDEN NEWS
JGarden Incorporates as Non-Profit - We made a big leap at the end of last year and decided to incorporate the JGarden project into a non-profit organization. This is an important step for the database and the web site as it will allow us to potentially apply for grants and function as a 501(c)3 charitable organization. This shouldn't mean any changes in the near term but we hope that over the long term, this will be a more vibrant project, with more choices, more timely updates and better information.

Hands-on Japanese Garden Class - Beginning February 2, 2003, Mike Yamakami will begin offering a Japanese garden construction and maintenance class in Marietta, Georgia. The class will cover basic pruning, bamboo fence construction, stone placement, knots, tree transplanting and much more. The class will meet the first Sunday of each month beginning on February 2 at 9am. For more information see http://www.jgarden.org/features.asp?ID=60.

New Image Contributions - We've received new imagery contributions from
Jim Phillips (Carleton College, James Irvine Garden, Kubota Gardens), Phoenix, and Portland). Thanks to Jim for his continued contributions. JGarden now has more than 1800 images of 90+ gardens from around the world. You can see them all at the Garden Gallery.
