Dear Friends,
We invite you to join the New York City Community Gardens Coalition Yahoo Group
list if you live in New York City and are interested in the preservation of
community gardens, to be kept informed about the Coalition's news, to discuss
matters related to the Coalition's activities and share information related to
NYC Community Gardens, to post messages about your community garden's concerns,
share your photos and invite other city gardeners to your garden events.

The New York City Community Gardens Coalition's mission is to:
1) Promote the preservation and creation of community gardens and
community-developed open space in the five boroughs of New York City.
2) Educate the public about the value of gardens and the benefits they confer on
New York City residents.
3) Serve as an effective resource for providing information and technical
support to community gardeners.
4) Raise the profile of community gardening among elected and appointed
officials, the media, the environmental community and the general public.
5) Foster networking and communication among the NYC garden communities.

Since the success of legislation passed a few years ago to preserve New York
City's community gardens, many gardeners no longer see the need to be concerned
about protecting them. Some have grown complacent. Others who lost their gardens
to the bulldozers, regrettably, have lost interest in their communities as well.
Still others, however, have remained vigilant and active. We are now entering
the fourth year of an eight-year agreement with the city, which means that we
must continue to speak out for our interests and work on permanently preserving
precious green space in New York City. These too-few green spaces dotted
throughout New York are precious and require our dedicated guardianship. We
cannot afford to relax our vigilance. We cannot wait and risk losing any or all
of these precious oases. The struggle to preserve and even create more communal
gardens and parks in the City is as important on a local level as the struggle
for clean air, water and soil, as important as the struggle to preserve old
forests globally. We all have an impact on our environment. There is so much
we can do together to give to our communities and to our city; any and all
efforts are needed and welcomed. We are guardians of the land, we are guardians
of green spaces and we must speak out when they are being threatened or
destroyed. We must solicit the help of our local government representatives and
demand that they act in our interests. This group list can keep us all connected
and allow us to communicate quickly with one another. Stay tuned for more news
coming soon!
This Email is sent to you because you have either expressed an interest in New
York City's community gardens, are a community gardener yourself, have attended
events or meetings organized by the New York City Community Gardens Coalition or
other gardens/green groups' events recently. Please forward to your fellow
gardeners to help spread the word about the Group.
There are over 600 community gardens in New York City, Let's grow this group to
include at least one member per garden. There is strength in numbers! Thanks in
