Lots to Grow

Lots to Grow is a deep dive into New York City's community gardens, unique open spaces created and maintained by neighborhood volunteers. As NYC grows and develops, how are gardens and their caretakers adapting to the new challenges that come from neighborhood change? Through interviews with more than 35 individuals, New Yorkers for Parks catalogues the history of gardens, their present day functions, and how they are dealing with issues ranging from cultural clashes to losses of land to their complicated and sometimes temporary status.
