    NYCCGC is firmly against the Proposed Rule:
    While we were heartened to be included in the drafting process of the Rule,
    we are demanding inclusion of clearly stated protections for "the gardens offered to Parks Department
    for preservation as community gardens or open space" as in the present Agreement.


    All community gardeners and their supporters need to be at this hearing!
    Bring your fellow gardeners, bring your City Council member, bring banners & signs!


    To review the current and pending legislation that governs our gardens,
    including Parks' Proposed Rule, HPD's Proposed Rulemaking, and the
    2002 Memorandum of Agreement (the "Community Gardens Agreement"), click here.
