Join us tomorrow, Monday April 21and during the rest of the week in an encampment to save Fantasy Garden from environmental racism!  Bring your sleeping bag; food provided.

Where:  Fantasy Garden, 181 Legion Street, corner Blake in Brownsville, east Brooklyn
              3 Train: Saratoga St stop, walk north on Saratoga two blocks past Dumont to Blake, go left one block to Legion.  Diagonally across from brand-new school.

When:   Monday, April 21 from early morning (8am to 10am) till the garden is saved (you're welcome to stay overnight)
What:    Defend this beautiful, loved community garden from impending bulldozing, slated for Monday according to NY Times Saturday edition!
              Four gardens were destroyed by developer last week with no prior notice despite ongoing promise of good faith negotiations between developer, community, and neighboring coincilmember Charles Barron (local councilmember Tracy Boyland is once again totally missing)

Facts:     * Even though Brownsville has the third-highest asthma rate in the city and the least community green space, the latest "settlement" between the city and the Attorney General requires all community gardens in the district to be destroyed.
              * All housing to be built over the ruins of these gardens will be market-rate, ie. unaffordable for local community.
              * No community input was allowed during formation of the deal between city and developer.

Phone and Email To do:    Call developer Acosta Hendley at 718-624-6203 and wake up local councilmember Tracy Boyland at 718-345-3110, boyland@council.nyc.ny.us
Thank councilmember Charles Barron for standing up with the community and doing the right thing!   718-649-9495 barron@council.nyc.ny.us
