Message from Bushwick's "Stannard-Diggs Garden"

  • Subject: [cg] Message from Bushwick's "Stannard-Diggs Garden"
  • From: Adam36055@aol.com
  • Date: Sat, 19 Apr 2003 12:15:44 EDT


The attached  message was in my mailbox this morning from the NYC 
Cybergardens listserve.

FYI"  Bushwick is a low income, predominantly Black and Hispanic neighborhood 
in Brooklyn with extraordinarily high asthma rates in its children.  Aresh 
Jahadi and More Gardens! have been there for the losers in the 2002 Community 
Garden settlement (i.e., those gardens who were further down the development 
pipeline due to the usual nexus of ethically compromised local community 
boards and elected officials  with the "no questions asked" cash envelopes of 
the real estate development community.) 

I share this message with you to memorialize the loss of this garden for the 
American Community Gardening Association and to testify that what happens 
outside of our garden gates is crucial to our survival. 

Best wishes,
Adam Honigman

After reading current e-mails (re: Bushwick Gardens), I had to write 
this....Aresh offered to help us, but we feel that realistically, the legal 
process is complete & there is ultimately nothing that can be done. I want to 
take this opportunity to commend Aresh on his work, his dedication, his 
respect, his patience, & his love. If there were more like him, all gardens 
really would have a chance. Thank you More Gardens & especially Aresh. We 
love you!
