I'd like to share with the American Community Gardening Listserve the 
following press release.

One of the small, unexpected treasure's of NYC's community gardens is the 
turtle pond at the  Liz Christy Garden in the Bowery. Laura Braddock was 
central to making this happen in an area where bottles of Night Train and 
prowling real estate developers are more common.  

This award is particularly important to this garden, possibly the first of 
the new community gardens to bloom through the work of the NYC Green Guerilla 
movement during the early seventies.  Official recognition like this is 
always helpful as another exhibit for governmental hearing table 
documentation. (I'm also very pleased that Laura Braddock has another star in 
her crown.)

Until recently, a two lane road had been proposed by NYC planning to bisect 
this small garden as a thoroughfare to a proposed new shopping district., 
part of the Cooper's Square Development plan. Fortunately, citywide garden 
organization and neighborhood lobbying to the local community board, elected 
and appointed officials, petitions and the sheer beauty of the garden  seem 
to have prevailed with  NYC's Dept. of Housing Preservation and Development. 

The loveliness of this garden and its'  wonderful, year-round turtle pond are 
an inspiration to anyone who wants to recreate natural beauty in an urban 

Best wishes,

Environmental Quality Award Winners: New York

Laura Braddock, New York City

As a member of the Liz Christy Bowery Houston Garden, Laura has helped 
her community develop gardens and open space. Traditionally, 
this community had no resources to build gardens. Laura lent them her 
technical expertise and provided  the only turtle pond with nine red eared 
sliders open to the public in Manhattan.
She is not only fostering a community appreciation for the 
environment, she is also beautifying the city -- one garden at a time.
