Adam Purple, Creator of NY Garden of Eden, Dead at 84

Brilliant Environmentalist and Urban Farmer –

NY City Destroyed the Garden of Eden

NY Garden of Eden

Adam Purple passed last week in NY City.  He was a famous environmentalist and urban farmer who created a fantastic garden in the middle of an abandoned area of New York.  It lasted for years, until the greedy NY politicians seized the land and tore up the garden, which had become a tremendous community asset, both for the food it produced and for the restful place that folks could gather around.
