Re: Re: Community Gardens in Livermore


Thank you so much for your very kind words! I really appreciate them. I just want to say that before I got fully involved in this quest of doing something that most people thought could not be done, I had no idea what was going to happen. However, I was prepared to fight in any way I knew how to and prepared to lose also. I had never done anything like this before, and I am not sure why I was picked to do this, it was merely by accident that I was asked to help...or was it? I guess I have now been labeled as an 'activist', I am not even sure if that's good or bad, but, for what is worth, I rather be an activist than a 'passivist', or 'passive person'. ;-)

I also want to add that this would have NEVER gone through without the support of the public in general. Yes, it's true that I got the ball rolling, and that I didn't give up although most people had no faith in me, but still, I could not have done it on my own, there were 2 people that trusted my abilities and kept me going, giving me moral support, and that's the biggest challenge: to find people that are willing to help, even if only a little bit. In the end, it all adds up. A lot of people really want to help, you just have to ask, and don't feel bad if they say 'no', it's also an acceptable answer. :-)

Thank you, again. This is a small victory that will go a long way...and I am really excited to see what the future will bring to the little garden in Livermore. I only wish that this victory gives hope to the many people who might be struggling to save a garden. It can happen!
