Big City Politics and a Greenwich Village Garden


This is a piece from this weeks Villager ( a Manhattan neighborhood paper)
on how a garden was created from the ruins of the infamous NY Department of
Corrections "Women's House of Detention" in Greenwich Village. While this is
an oddball space, neither botanic garden nor full fledged community garden
in the sense that we know it ( Dept. of Parks workers and volunteers keep it
going, usually through a combination of foundation funding and whatever
trickles down through city appropriations) it is a classic description of
how the "50% gardening and 100% political" equation works.


Happy gardening,
Adam Honigman
