The Manassas, Va.-based Garden Writers Association (GWA) claims a membership of more than 1,800 professional communicators in the lawn and garden industry. Its website, in addition to providing information about the organization and the benefits of membership, including the association's annual symposium scheduled September 9-12, 2005, in Vancouver, also includes several features that will be of interest to the broader community of gardeners. Visitors may peruse an extensive listing of books authored by GWA members and can also download a sample edition of the organization's newsletter, _Quill & Trowel_. The Speakers Bureau may help meeting planners, club leaders and others find a speaker to meet their program and budget needs. The site also introduces the organization's Plant a Row for the Hungry (PAR) project, describing it as an effort "to create and sustain a grassroots program whereby garden writers utilize their media position with local newspapers, magazines and radio/TV programs to encourage their readers/listeners to donate their surplus garden produce to local food banks, soup kitchens and service organizations to help feed America's hungry." Visitors can download the PAR cookbook in pdf format for free to see various member-submitted ideas for preparing fresh vegetables for the table.
