Don't Destroy a Community Garden

To be delivered to Arielle Goldberg, Senior Policy Analyst at HPD and Kicy Motley, Brooklyn Borough Director at Office of the Mayor

Petition Statement

Take Imani Community Garden off the "to be developed" list.
There are currently 176 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

Imani is the only community garden with garden beds in a 20 block area in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Dozens of local residents, school children, and interested groups have spent thousands of hours building up the Imani garden. It features a greenhouse and 13 raised beds. It provides local organic food for its members and the local community. It is a place for learning, working together, and meeting friends, and it's about to be turned into a condo (or something similar), unless the Dept. of Housing Preservation and Development takes it off the list of properties to be developed before Feb. 19th, 2015. There are hundreds of other sites available that do not have community gardens on them.
