A Transition & Notice.

  • Subject: [cg] A Transition & Notice.

This afternoon I  resigned as a member of the  Clinton Community Garden's 
steering committee.  

My fellow steering committee members, good friends all, do not share my 
strong, personal disapproval of the current policies and direction of the NYC Parks 
Green Thumb program. The value of democratically elected and transparent 
garden governance is that we can vote policy up and down. 

And that friends can agree to disagree. 

As the garden's steering committee wishes to continue to  maintain a cordial 
relationship with the current management of Green Thumb and to host the Parks 
Green Thumb's Annual Summer Solstice Celebration in 2006,  the Clinton 
Community Garden's steering committee accepted my resignation, they say, with regret. 

My personal regret is that the tone of  in my written comments about Edie 
Stone, Green Thumb's Director, were personal and  unkind. And while I stand 
behind the statements I made about Green Thumb's  policy and management, the ad 
hominem really has no place in the discussion of policy - my personal fault and 
one for which I apologize to Ms. Stone and to the readers of these listserves. 

I have chosen to continue my association with the CCG as a  gardener and 
volunteer. However, any views that I have expressed or express in these forums 
have always been and remain my own, and should not be construed to reflect the 
views or policies of the Clinton Community Garden. 

Best wishes, 
Adam Honigman
