As you may know, my late wife, Allegra Benveniste Honigman, RN, CCN, BASW died on January 9th 2004. Allegra had served as steering committee member and long-time gardener at the Clinton Community Garden in NYC. Clinton Community Garden .
During her over 30 year career as a nurse, Allegra cared for thousands of patients, was a strong advocate for accessible universal single payer health care, quality public education, regionally based agriculture & food security and was in her own very special way, "the mayor of 9th Avenue." Allegra was as much loved by her community, colleagues and members of her exended family as by our son and me.
My wife Allegra was also a fine student and had completed her Fordham University course work for a Bachelors in Social Work before she died.
After our son Daniel Benveniste Honigman and I receive her diploma and watch the first awarding of the "Allegra Benveniste Honigman, RN, BASW Graduate Award in Social Work," at Fordham University on Saturday afternoon we will be holding the garden reception we promised her during Thanksgiving Dinner last fall.
