Greenbank Farm is now a mishmash

Greenbank Farm? After decades of efforts to supposedly preserve it, it is now instead Greenbank mall/power plant/park & ride/special events center. The spirit of the place, its rural character, its aesthetic essence have been sacrificed to a dog’s breakfast of competing purposes that have eroded its special nature and destroyed the original intent of its preservation.

This is what happens when a noble vision gets carved up by special interest groups. Its simple, bucolic charm and beauty have been lost forever. It is now Greenbank Mishmash.
