Subject: save the garden

I am in a fight to save a community garden from developers.  It has existed for nearly 100 years--honest--run by a school.  Then it was a victory garden. I am thinking that there must be a strategy that has worked for others.  Please advise.  It strikes me that public sentiment is important.  Is the local councilman the first contact.  Agricultural extension agents? .  How about local garden clubs?  The newspaper? Parks Commission?  Who are our best advocates?
This is a political issue--not a logical one.  People understand the value of green space. Any quick ideas of how we proceed?  A mtg. is scheduled for tomorrow night.  Thanks for any ideas.
Pam Hoffmann, gardener
