Garden paradise in the City

Jump to last reply

What a marvelous transformation thanks to Bette Midler turning some trashy slums in New York City into lovely gardens and green space! I am wondering if anyone has seen this or might do so. And does anyone know of other such urban projects? If we had more such initiatives it would greatly transform our human-caused wastelands into spaces of beauty. It wouldn't need to be urban either as I think of many trashy rural or small town areas...around roads and empty stores and abandoned barns and weed lots. I wonder if anyone has thanked Bette. Or how you could?
