This message really rings a bell, the Same kind of thing is happening to
the Sherbrook Street Community Garden in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada. The
West Broadway Horticultural Society is developing a French Medieval
Kitchen Garden at the site, a 14 year old community garden purchased by
the development corporation 2 years ago. They hired a green team
co-ordinator who now has plans for development of the garden which have
not been in consultation with the Horticultural Society or even taking
our aims into consideration. I am a member of the Horticultural Society
I also a studied horticulture at  Royal Botanic Gardens  Kew, another
member has been a professional horticulturalist for almost a decade. And
yet city planning students who know little about plants or the history
of the garden in the area wish to impose a parallel and often
unsustainable vision of the garden. This kind of city planning is an
institutional impediment to sustainability. You guys dont sound like
green horns. Keep up the struggle to have a say in what goes on in your
community. Youve got to take control of the situation. When you find out
how to do that please let me know. Karen
