Led By Village Preservation

Through direct engagement with gardeners, activists, and residents, Dr. Miranda Martinez’s book “Power at the Roots” delves into the community gardening movement and how these groups inserted themselves into local politics and development to create change. Delve deep with her into how the Puerto Ricans of the LES have sustained their movements and gardens. Dr. Martinez took us to the grassroots in this special book talk from December 10, 2020.
