Pitchforks (and hydrant wrenches) aloft!

Flower Power! We are neighbors who are interested in bringing some botanical beauty to the bike-lane
tree pits so we have persuaded the city to allow us to garden there unimpeded. Anyone is welcome to
join at any level of involvement. There are no dues and no formal meetings; Just a desire to keep
Chelsea tree-lined and flower-filled. Join us!

Pit destruction and its aftermath...

Jared in Tom Duane's office did us a solid this week:
Several pits around 12th Street and Eight Avenue (our formerly unknown southern district) that Robert (17th & 8th) had also gardened, were ripped up without notice and all of the plants there destroyed. Christine Quinn's office helped find out who committed this dastardly deed and Tom Duane (and Jared) penned a terrific letter so that this does not happen to any other adopted pits without appropriate advance notice.
The letter is below.
A giant "thank you" to our guardian angels!
