A Day In Spring - Wholesale Bronx Garden Bulldozing

  • Subject: [cg] A Day In Spring - Wholesale Bronx Garden Bulldozing
  • From: "Honigman, Adam" <Adam.Honigman@Bowne.com>

Friends,
These messages were sent to the NYC cybergardens list serve by Mark Leger, a
Brooklyn based citywide garden activist and JK a garden activist with "More
Gardens" respectively.  Aresh Javadi is among the arrested and knows how to
deal with lock-downs, having done this before. - His mobile phone is
917-518-9987 if you want to call him ( or if his phone has been confiscated
by now, leave a voice mail message for him once he has been "processed
through the system". I have made my phone calls and messages to elected
officials.  

Those of us who work 9-5 often can't be there except to pass the word,
support, and contribute to bail/defense funds. Those who can, do more.  This
is for your information.

Best wishes,
Adam Honigman
Message 1: 
I just received notification that the Cabo Rojo Community Garden in the
South Bronx has been bulldozed. The gardeners there are asking for people to
show up in support.

Directions: Take the 2 or the 5 Train to 149th and 3rd Ave Station. Walk up
north on Melrose Avenue to 159th Street. Walk left one block on 159th to
Courtlandt Street. Look for Giant Sunflower in the garden.

Contact persons: Luis and Aresh: (917) 518-9987.

For more information on the Cabo Rojo encampment, visit the More Gardens!
website - <http://www.moregardens.org>.

In solidarity,

Mark Leger
Brooklyn Alliance of Neighborhood Gardens (BANG)

Message 2: 

PLEASE SPREAD FAR AND WIDE

Urgent - Cabo Rojo bulldozing taking place right now - make 2 calls

Please call these two phone numbers:

Nos Quedamos 718-585-2323 - they are the "community" group that has planned
the Melrose Commons area with the intent of building over all the 19 gardens
within, replacing them with low density housing and some kind of tiny
private 
landscaped areas. Tell them we are all watching what they are doing up
there. Their international reputation for working for the people is OVER
and 
they are being exposed for what they are: insensitive to the needs and
wishes 
of the community, behaving like the worst developers, and it looks like
there's some exchange of money going on that they would prefer us not to
know 
about. 


City Hall 212-788-3000 - tell Mike what's going on, what you think
of it. Let him know there ARE community gardens and what they mean to New
Yorkers who don't have homes in the Hamptons.

Thanks.

JK

P.S. if you want to do more and it's right now, go to Cabo Rojo and show
yourself to the media. 159th and Courtlandt (2/5 to 149th and 3rd, walk 10
blocks up Melrose, 1 block west) or try calling Aresh who is locked down:
917-518-9987
