This book is about community gardens and the struggles to save them from gentrified redevelopment in New York City's Lower East Side. It is a vivid account of the community garden preservation movement, focusing on how working-class Puerto Rican and middle-class white gardeners waged the struggle against displacement by inserting themselves into local politics and development to change the calculus of real estate and housing policies.
