The garden reopening date of March 1, 2020, as stated by the Joe Buscaino’s office, is delayed. We are near the the end of March, one month after the date the City announced the gardens would reopen. There still remains is no word on when the gardens will reopen.
The coronavirus has hampered everyone’s lives including the installation of the water piping and therefor the opening of the garden.
As of few weeks ago, I did see workers installing water piping. Now the gardens are complete closed off.
There have been no updates from the city or the groups involved in the renovation of the garden. Many are working from home so updates and communication is possible. They need to commit to updates as gardeners would like to get back to gardening in the fresh air.
These parties have a responsibility to gardens as well as being good custodians to update and communicate the status to us gardeners. Existing in silo in this age of technology is unacceptable.
Times are challenging, but good people rise to the challenge to help others.
