Two responses:
1) The gardener:
The City of New York has recognized the significance of community gardens in the same way the the United States of America recognizes it's native Americans :"No more smallpox filled blankets anymore,  we'll say nice things about you in the press, but still  take your land if we want it ...and make pius noises when people are looking."
I'm still pissed-off at how gardeners are screwed in the fine print.  It will take a lot of us a goodwhile to cool-off. Maybe when we see the flowers and food growing in the gardens that do survive a few years down the road.

just read Sarah Ferguson's article in City Limits Weekly. Although I feel with every gardener
minding a patch of land that is still up for development without review, I
feel that the agreement found now is a very positive signal  as far as
recognizing the significance of these urban spaces not only to the people
that regularly use it, but to the whole city and even beyond.

I hope that many of those some 100 gardens subject to review in the local
planning boards will survive and also that at least some activists on  those
lots subject to immediate development will find an agreement with

Of course Im most happy about all the gardens that will be saved for sure.
Our thoughts were with you for many years and perhaps this positive  - even
though nonmaterial - effort has contributed in some way or another.

I want to translate and publish Sarah's article in our quarterly
magazine "Space!" (Platz da!)- which we distribute on a non-for-profit base
to activists of Berlin's adventure playground and city farm association.
