Backyard Happenings

Backyard Happenings explores the role of community gardens in New York City, from their earliest beginnings to their current struggle to survive in a man-made landscape. This project exists as a selection of materials that explains the unique history of New York’s community gardens, and also provides the resources necessary to either become involved in the gardens or plant a garden of your own.
