In NYC:

The Municipal Art Society presents the premiere of RATS TO ROSES - a
 half-hour documentary film that celebrates
 New York City's community gardens and the dedicated volunteers who keep
 them flourishing. 
 
 New York City's gardens have provided a haven, a sanctuary, and a
 community center without walls to thousands of New Yorkers, particularly
 low-income people of color. Currently, city government is threatening to
 bulldoze more than half of the 800 community gardens in the five boroughs.
 RATS TO ROSES documents the journey to establish and preserve several city
 gardens and to galvanize support for these precious and endangered
 community treasures.
 
 Join us for a premiere screening, followed by a discussion with the film
 maker and community garden activists from around the city.
 Wednesday, May 22
 6:00 p.m.
 The Municipal Art Society
 457 Madison Avenue at 51st Street.

Best wishes,

Adam Honigman
