Appendix C: Related Newsgroups, Websites, Mailing Lists and Off-Line
               Addresses

     There are lots of newsgroups, websites, and mailing lists on
     the Internet that have relevance to the home gardener. New
     resources come on-line almost continuously while others fall by
     the way side. This appendix is a listing of the names and
     addresses of some of the more relevant newsgroups, websites and
     mailing lists for the home gardener following organic gardening
     and/or IPM. The appendix also lists a number of off-line
     addresses. An effort is made to keep this appendix current.

     We are open to suggestions as to additions or deletions.
