Brooklyn is totally filled with community gardens. There is one on every block some places. They are inaccessible! they are open two hours a week or you have to go through red tape and bullshit. what are they thinking? This is the most backward law. Neutering the power of community gardens to have a beneficial effect on the community and teach people about nature by existing. I have complained many times and it does no good. At the seattle permaculture food forest they said that the thing everyone asks is what happens if homeless people eat it all? their answer is great! It’s their dream that all the food would get eaten. Cats would thrive there and stop any disease transmitting rodents (that also have a right to eat and are smart). A simple closed circuit camera would deter anyone from harvesting all of it to sell. And grazing should be totally okay. Let’s stop being so selfish about little 5x5 plots of land and share natures abundance. I saw a little garden without a fence and spent an hour cleaning up all the trash and weeding. Take that ugly nonsense down! it’s called permaculture.
