I am one of "these people who come from Kansas and Oklahoma, and wherever
else, who think they have a right to their own private gardens," At first I
took a dash of umbrage at her triad, but then I realized she was right. We
do think we have a right to a garden. To be sure, the issues here have more
to do with community and poverty than with space, hell I could feed New Your
City for free if I could farm the vacant land in Oklahoma City. Presented
with the choice of a high rise or destroying an established neighborhood
garden few of us 'wherever else' folk would think twice. I had it in my mind
that New York was a melting pot.....but that's another issue.
Its like breathing. Growing food.
But I see a possibility for Community Garden art here. On behalf of your
brothers here in Oklahoma, I would like to mail you an Oklahoma flag and some
okra seed for the Clinton Garden. (e-m me a mailing address). New standards
for a new New York.
I'm looking forward to seeing you in July.
