about

The book investigates the development of community gardens with self-built structures, which have existed as a shared public open space land use form in New York City''s low-come neighborhoods like the South Bronx since the 1970s. These gardens have continued to be part of the urban landscape until today, despite conflicting land use interests, changing residents groups and contradictory city planning. Both community gardens and self-built structures are created in a participatory design and self-built effort by urban residents and are an expression of the individual gardeners'' preferences, their cultural background and the decisions made by the managing residents'' group in regards to the needs of their neighborhood.
