Garden Coalition Rally

I went to the New York City Community Garden Coalition rally this morning. I’m really proud of them. Personally, I came away energized and inspired. And there was a ton of media there–

The big political moment was when Christine Quinn spoke. She’s a shifty one. While I believe that, unlike Giuliani, she doesn’t have an idealogical bent against community gardens, her primary interest is in her career and appeasing her powerful supporters, including Bloomberg. In her speech, she talked not about making current gardens permanent, but about making the program permanent. She also plugged her office’s crappy rules. I have a video of it, but I need to learn how to convert from AVI to a format that WordPress likes.
