NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A dispute over the control of the Evergreen Community Garden in Queens has grown intense.
The feud is rooted in last year’s decision by the Parks Department to take control of the Evergreen Community Garden. A group of Korean immigrants cleared the trash out of the lot on Colden Street 30 years ago and turned it into a beautiful garden with vegetables and flowers, 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported. The Korean American Senior Center controlled it.
The senior group of Korean Americans has complained that they were left out of the garden’s new management.
