From Tamra Raven.
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.
