 Helen's Fantasy Garden is blooming out into vibrant greens.
 
 Helen attended the Mayor and Christy Whitman of the Environmental 
 "Protetion" Agency on Earth day with a possie of her gardeners.
 Somehow she infiltrated the exclusiveley invited crowd and asked the 
 mayor "how is it with all the asthma and intense lack of green space 
 that all the prescios Brownsville gardens are under attack?
 
 Later that night at the Brownsville's Community Board a ferocious Anne 
 Thompson from the Future Leader Garden blasted councilmember Tracy 
 Boyland (718-345-3110, boyland@council.nyc.ny.us 
 <mailto:boyland@council.nyc.ny.us> )  on her complicity in the 
 bulldozing of four Brownsville gardens last week.  Those gardens were in 
 the middle of good-faith negotiations with the developer when they were 
 stabbed in the back.
 
 Please call Mayor Bloomberg(212 788 3000) and tell him to correct HPD 
 (212 863 7000.)  They've been telling developers like Acosta Headley 
 (718 624 6203) who are in good faith negotiations with the community to 
 bulldoze gardens immediatley or lose future deals.  Tell the mayor that 
 this policy must stop immediately. Tell him to instruct HPD to start a 
 vigorous policy to create more gardens with truly affordable housing in 
 all of its present and future plans for our city lot >>
