Standing up against something bigger than you in support of your family, neighborhood and friends is not easy. When builders want to take over a community garden to build a parking lot, Lily rallies to work against that decision and keep her community garden open. Lily pulls together friends to fight the builders and she and her community of friends manage to gain a year of time back for the garden. They vow to be ready to fight again next year too!
