“Greater Boston with Emily Rooney” takes a detailed look at the past, present and future of Parcels 19, 21 and 22, near the Intercontinetal Hotel/Residences.
The video segment is called, “The Greenway Rift” with the following excerpt: “The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy Board plans to redesign some parcels near South Station. The idea is to provide space for farmers’ markets and art fairs. But it would require removing scenic gardens planted by the Massachusetts Horticultural Society after thousands of hours of volunteer work. Richard Dimino, the president of A Better City, and Robert Brown who served on the Central Artery Competition Task Force discuss the rift between the Greenway and MassHort with Emily.”
There is a letter being distributed for a group that is forming to support the Greenway Gardens:
“Many of us want to preserve gardens and greenspace for today and for our future. Pass the word to other garden lovers! We are looking forward to an opportunity to work with you, and to collaborate with The Conservancy to maintain world class gardens! Together, we can make our city beautiful!”
Interested folks should contact Diane at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
