Just last week we learned that the city is transferring La Casita Verde to the Parks Department from Department of Housing Preservation & Development (HPD). This means that there will be no housing development planned for 451 Bedford Avenue and our community garden is here to stay!
Great news for LCV and we are all looking forward to a bright and fruitful 2016.
Thank you to all the nearly 250 people who signed our petition and fought for La Casita Verde.
Here is a DNAinfo story about the transfer: http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20151231/bed-stuy/34-community-gardens-saved-from-demolition-after-city-makes-them-parks
