I left the Big City to begin a new life on top of a (small) mountain. The nearest town has a population of around 6,000. Nature is everywhere around me. I look out on a beautiful plateau every morning from my kitchen window. The sky is so big it takes my breath away.
I can no longer imagine living in a city of concrete and buildings and too many people. But if I did, and there were a garden nearby, I would be there every day.
Gabriel Byrne and his neighbors are in danger of losing their garden in Little Italy, NY. In this video, he and others describe why the Elizabeth Street Garden is so important–to them, to their children, to their pets, to everyone’s health and happiness, to their souls. Kudos to them all for speaking out and to Mr. Byrne for being an activist for this garden, such an important part of living in the Big City.
