Friends,

From Tamra Raven.

Best wishes,
Adam Honigman

Happy Monday to you!  I would like to invite you to
the screening of Rats to Roses.


RATS TO ROSES a half-hour documentary 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, particularly low-income people of color.
Currently, city government is threatening to bulldoze
more than half of the
800 community gardens in 5 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.

<sum> Disclaimer: This is a  fine cut, currently
working on the soundtrack and final graphics.
Filmmaker wanted to show the film, to galvanize
support and make others aware that the current
administration allowed for the bulldozing of one
community garden last month and that 450 are still in
danger.
