Sponsors, linked: You know them, you garden with them

They aren't only names on a list, they're faces we know and hands who have helped, as here at one of our Detroit Zoo Adopt-A-Gardens. From left: Julia Moncecchi, Michele Armstrong, Susan Campbell, Anne Crimmins, Gail Anderson, Keith Heraty and Janet take a breath atop they wall they just built. (Some others vamoosed when the camera appeared: Paul and Priscilla Needle, for instance, are currently invisible, rock solid support!)

Our Sponsors -- so many of you -- have waited patiently during the 18 months we worked to develop this site. Now that we are "up" we have asked them to look it over, decide where to make their marks and let us know.
We are listing them here as they chime in.

We are also and always glad to welcome new Sponsors.
