A note from Haja Worley,
New York City Community Gardens Coalition

Dear Gardeners/Guardians:

I hope you will appreciate the Forum Report, and that it will inspire ideas
plans as we go forward. The 2006 Community Gardeners Forum is an example of
how far the community garden movement has come. The questions asked and issues
explored are indicators of all weCB"Cb,Cb"ve accomplished as well as all
that lies ahead
of us.

We each need to take into account how extraordinarily valuable community
are to the social, environmental, and economic fabric of this city. As we face
politicians and policy makers it is critical that we know ourselves not only
CB"Cb,CEgardeners,CB"Cb,CB but as guardians of the land; we are
grassroots developers. Our
contribution to our cityCB"Cb,Cb"s infrastructure is huge. If one were to
assign a dollar
amount to all the CB"Cb,CEcommunity developmentCB"Cb,CB we as
gardeners have accomplished,
and the impact we have had on the development and maintenance of the
CB"Cb,CEurban forest,CB"Cb,CB
the figure would be staggering.

Our challenge, as we go forward, is to arm ourselves with the history of our
and the numerous ways in which we have positively impacted our neighborhoods
the city at large. Unity is key to our future success. We need to work toward
solidifying policies and building legislation that will secure our existance
recognize the magnitude of our contributions.

Please help us prepare for the 2007 Community Gardeners Forum. Remember that
agreement between the City of New York and the State Attorney General expires
2010. We should take advantage of the time we have to ensure our permanence.
fact that many gardens are under the auspices of Parks and Recreation does not
itself guarantee their permanence. As evidenced in the Bronx,
CB"Cb,CEeminent domainCB"Cb,CB
is being used to take over parkland for a new Yankee Stadium, and a water
plant is being imposed on Van Cortlandt Park

There is much to do. I invite you to work with us; stay in touch; come to
and other events. Give us your feedback!

Keep it green!
