Take Back Morning Glory Community Garden!

      Morning Glory Community Garden

      Bronx, United States Minor Outlying Islands

Community members and local students have maintained Morning Glory for two years at Union Avenue and Southern Boulevard in the South Bronx, hosting events, growing organic food for the neighborhood, and providing a venue for student involvement and activism for nearby Gompers High School students. Last week, city workers locked gardeners out of their space and destroyed raised beds, compost bins and a seating area with tables and chairs.

We, the undersigned, call on the department of Housing, Preservation and Development to cease the demolition of Morning Glory Community Garden, and meet with gardeners to inform them of land use plans for their space and negotiate an agreement beneficial to the people of the neighborhood. We have visited the garden and/or attended events in the past, and believe it is an important community resource that must not be destroyed.

      A community garden growing organic food in a world facing a horrific food shortage and yet the raised beds and foods are destroyed and the gates locked? Despicable! Give these people back their gardens and allow them to do something positive for their community. I'm so sick of the greedy few ruining things for the smaller people!
