Included in the collection are membership lists, correspondence and letters, city counsel minutes, CADA agency proposals and minutes, organic gardening publications, photographs and scrapbooks, maps, financial records, legal files relating to the campaign to save the garden, video speeches, newspaper articles, artifacts and ephemera.
