A Sierra Club video brings the inspiration of simple action - often involving years of labour - and also highlights the venerable state of these islands of life amidst acres of New York's concrete, glass and garbage. Community gardens bring people together and and provide the refreshment the more affluent seek in holidays away from home. Not surprisingly, these gardens are under threat as development and politics take precedence in the eyes of those with power. Watch this video and be inspired by the simple magic of growing together.
