Press Conference: Environmental Injustice in the Bronx

Community gardeners stood their ground. Half of the original green space
is now to be made permanent. Housing and Green Spaces must stay in
balance!

Tomorrow, Thursday December 2, 2004, 11am

In front of Family Group Garden, E. 158th Street between Courtlandt and
Park Aves.

In the South Bronx, over 28,000 square feet of open green space, home to 3
community gardens, are being lost, in a highly inequitable exchange of
community space in the most toxic, least green, highest population
density, most asthma-riddled neighborhood in the city, and one of the two
poorest Congressional districts in the USA.

Gardeners and residents will help move out plants and speak out about
their challenges to preserve the remaining 14 community green spaces, and
to create more community gardens and truly affordable housing.  We will
explain the Homes and Gardens Plan, a proposal by the community and
housing experts, showing how both gardens and more units of housing can be
implemented in the Melrose area.

Thanks to the commitment and strong vision of the people of the South
Bronx and the Environmental Justice Center and other organizations
dedicated to improving the conditions here, we have been able to stem the
tide of total destruction of open green space.  Come and meet some of
these heroes tomorrow and Sunday.

Story:
South Bronx Community Gardens supported by More Gardens! and othe
awsesome gardenenrs were in court early this morning December 1st at
8:30 am to hear what the fate of three community gardens in the South
Bronx would be. "Sunshine Garden", "Family Group Garden" and "Lainos
Unidos Garden" came to a reluctant agreement to evacuate their present
locations and move all chosen trees and belongings to the Courtlandt
community garden and another nearby vacant lot by this coming Sunday
December 5th at 6pm.

Theremaining structures and trees will be razed Monday morning by bulldozers.

Hon. Eileen Branston, Judge of the Supreme Court had issued a Temporary
Restraining Order barring the City of New York from selling three plots of
land found in the Melrose Section of the South Bronx late last month. The
petitioners in this case, community gardeners and an organization
representing community gardeners, South Bronx United Gardeners, Inc.
(SBUG), had brought the proceeding against the City for its failure to
comply with procedures set forth in the City Charter in disposing of the
City-owned lots.

Right after the court hearing a group marched over to Green Thumb who's
offices are around the corner where we were welcomed by empathetic GT
members immediately setting forth a plan to help move everything with all
the necessary equipment and supportive man power. This includes adding
secure fencing where needed, rooting up large trees including a peach
tree, cherry tree, crabapple tree and taking cuttings from the grapevines
that will be replanted in the spring amongst other items, possibly large
structures or two, tools, grills and other items that are moveable.

 This is a small victory that after many years of ruthless bulldozing
without any proper warning. This time  we are able to move as much as we
can. We are however, moving into much smaller plots that will be sharing
with other established gardens. A difficult inconvenient unnecessary move
in the large scheme of things but a compromise none the less, an
acknowledgement that we are serious about keeping our gardens alive in
all of our communities....MORE GARDENS!
