6th and B Community Garden in New York

There are more than 600 community gardens throughout New York City, and we’ll discuss the history and the future of community gardening here. We’re joined by Paula Segal, Executive Director of  596 Acres, a non-profit group that helps people identify vacant land in their neighborhoods, and turn them into gardens; Aziz Dehkan, Executive Director of  the NYC Community Garden Coalition; and Steve Frillman, Executive Director of Green Guerillas, who started some of the very first community gardens in the city. They'll also take calls about how to start a community garden in the city.
