Philadelphia, PA: Update on Autonomous Garden

Report from Philadelphia around growing tensions between developers and those wanting to keep an autonomous garden from being bulldozed.

If you’ve been wondering whats up with the guerilla garden at 4224 Baltimore Ave, it’s beginning to face its first pressures from development (by the same developers of Clarkville and with the support of Spruce Hill Community Association).

We found this flyer up that states:

“Real estate developers are trying to build fancy condos on this lot. Right now there is an autonomous garden here after years of vacancy. Before it was vacant, it was another community garden that was destroyed by the same developers in their first attempts at construction. This land is not ours. This land is not theirs either.

It is the land of the Lenni Lenape and of the birds and worms and sun and rain who live here. We don’t want more condos, or concrete, No more gentrification and sterilization. When the earth is dead, we are all dead too.”

We want to spread widely support for this project and of resistence to their developement and so-called “progress.”

While you’re here, we need your support. To continue running the website, we need support from community members like you. Will you support It’s Going Down, and help build independent media? donate?
