Post Settlement NYC Community Garden News

Friends,

This missive from the MoreGardens! folks is interesting, because it shows how 
gardeners are interacting with Bronx politicians, and sustainable housing 
groups like Nos Quedamos in the Melrose Section of the Bronx  in this post 2002 
NYC Attorney General/NYC Community Gardening Settlement  environment.   Urban 
Community gardeners are realizing that increasingly, the survival of their 
gardens requires them to be involved in the larger community planning process of 
their neighborhoods and cities.  

Interestingly, it seems that "green roofs" are more and more on the agenda.
