Cindy Nibbelink Worley presenting at 596 Acres' campaign action session at the 2017 Just Food Conference yesterday! She talked about the vibrant community life of this garden and the organizing the gardeners are doing to preserve it. Currently, this garden is in danger of shrinking. A private land-owner owns two of the four lots it’s on. The other two are owned by NYC Parks. The private landowner is attempting to evict the gardeners. It could be saved if the city uses eminent domain to buy the land from the private owner for the public good of preserving this vibrant community greenspace that neighbors created in 1985 on a vacant, rubble-strewn lot.
