Re: Saving New York City's Community Gardens

This is the first I've heard of this crazy scheme?  Why is the Mayor
auctioning these Community Gardens off?  I sure would like to know.  Perhaps
he will try to put up an apartment building so the city can get more
taxes???  It sure sounds crazy to me, since New York can stand all the
community gardens they can get.What's up with this?
Would like to know.Perhaps you should take him on a tour of the gardens.

Subject: Saving New York City's Community Gardens

>>Dear Mayor Giuliani,
>>Community gardens represent one of the best and most all around
>>positive developments in New York City.  They are founded by working New
>>Yorkers, thrive on principles of a true democracy, provide solace,
>>learning, and
>>pleasure to young and old, offer bridges across cultures and ethnic
>>groups, offer space for a multitude of cultural activities, and turn
>>neighborhoods and indeed the city as a whole into a more vibrant and
>>healthy environment.
>>New York's gardens have set a national example of innovative and
>>successful public policy and urban renewal.  They are studied and
>>admired across the  country.  Their preservation represents a special
>>opportunity to set a
>>critical environmental benchmark in this issue and to evidence
>>foresight for the cities of the future.
>>We hereby ask that you withdraw the gardens from the auction list.
