NYCHA Annual Citywide Garden Competition Awards

NYCHA has been in the news lately because of gang violence and alleged mismanagement, but overlooked is the more than 600 flower and vegetable gardens on NYCHA property that are lovingly tended by conscientious and hardworking residents. Not covered in the news, NYCHA held their Annual Citywide Garden Competition Awards at the Justice Sonia Sotomayor Community Center in the Bronx September 28, 2012. The almost three hundred gardeners that attended and the more than 70 that received awards remind us there is more to the news than meets the eye or ears. There are plenty of NYCHA “Villagers” that care about how they raise their children.

“Even though this planet is round, there are just too many spots where you can find yourself hanging onto the edge, unless there’s some space, some place to take a breather for a while.” –Gloria Naylor
