New York City Community Garden Coalition
Rally and Press Conference
Wednesday, August 4th, 10:00 a.m.

From the Flatbush Gardener blog
The East 4th Street/Windsor Terrace-Kensington Veterans Memorial Community Garden is one of over 100 NYC community gardens under Parks jurisdiction. The agreement that has largely protected community gardens in NYC since 2002 expires next month. The press conference is in response to the new community gardens rules proposed by the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation (Parks) and Housing Preservation and Development (HPD).
The press conference and rally will be held on the steps of City Hall in Manhattan.
