The More Gardens! Coalition is a group of community people, gardeners, and environmental and social justice activists who promote the development and preservation of community gardens as well as the cultivation of fallow land in New York City (NYC). We share information about community gardens with the public in order to raise awareness and engage people in both actual gardening and political activism. We organize individuals and groups to build an enduring infrastructure that provides direction and support for those engaged in the struggle for gardens. By using fundamental democratic tools we work with communities in order to reclaim local government and eventually affect its highest levels.
