These gardens have been cultivated by residents for many years and provide them with beauty, food, a therapeutic activity, and pride in their homes. They are an asset to the community of Yellow Springs and important for the quality of life for the residents. Their threatened removal by Greene Metropolitan Housing Authority is a decision that harms many and helps none. You can change the outcome.
GMHA's Mission Statement says:
- Be sensitive to the goals and desires of the community
- Respect the dignity and rights of the tenants
Even President Obama's family has a vegetable garden on the White House Lawn.
Please allow the Lawson Place residents to keep the gardens they love.
