SAVE THE CAMDEN CHILDREN’S GARDEN

The state literally wants to pave paradise to put up a parking lot.

The garden is an adorable little home-grown addition to the waterfront that not only provides a destination for kids from Camden and elsewhere to get hands-on learning about nature, it gives free start-up supplies and instruction to thousands of new community gardens in the city and employs countless Camden teens as interns and employees. It is seriously criminal for the state to seize it for some unannounced economic opportunity. The recent attempts at economic opportunity down there have gone nowhere. Where’s the fine dining restaurant we were promised? The hotel? Carl Dranoff’s “village?” I’m disgusted. And so is the Inqui’s editorial board and its architecture writer. Read their articles, then do something, if you’re so moved.
