A great turnout for the NYC Community Garden Coalition ( NYCCGC ) meeting , on July 15th. 55 attendees representing the coalition and community garden members from Harlem, Brooklyn and the Bronx.
The following is a recap of the meeting agenda: Park Dept.'s Proposed Rule to replace the 2002 Community Gardens Agreement/OAG Memorandum of Agreement, NYCCGC opposition to said rule and their request for inclusion in the writing of said rules to insure inclusion of clearly stated protections for "the gardens offered to Parks Department for preservation as community gardens or open space" as in the present Agreement.
The coalition is requesting that community gardeners and their supporters attend the hearing on August 10th , call the city (311) and inform them of your dissatisfaction with the proposed rule and email the Parks Commissioner. Use the link on the coalition website to review the proposed rules and email the Parks Commissioner; nyccgc.org.
The coalition will hold a press conference announcing their opposition to the proposed rules; date to be announced. As info becomes available we will post accordingly.
