I'm copying this to Aresh Jahadi of More Gardens!, who has been known to appear at garden events in a flower suit, and is the toughest guy in a flower suit I know. And so are his friends.
While I know that he's probably up to his neck in organizing a Bronx headquarters for MoreGardens! and whatever preparations he's making for the Republican convention - the Lower East Side "anarchists" will be making their voices heard as well as the rest of us - I know they need money for their work in saving Bronx gardens, so if the price is right, maybe some might show up in Boston.
Here is their website - http://www.moregardens.org/moregardens/ and some contact numbers - (718) 585-2109, cell (917) 518-9987.
Subj: [cg] Needed - plant costumes and/or activists for Dem convention in Boston Windowbox.com is starting a program called âShrubs Against Bush.â We feel that this president, the worst environmental president ever, has been bad for plants. We want to fight back on behalf of our green friends by selling plants to raise money for the Kerry campaign â we want to help them fight for undecided voters in swing states such as Ohio, Florida, and New Mexico.

During the Democratic convention next week, weâd like to have a few people handing out information cards, and it would be great if we could dress them as plants. We can pay a little to our members of the âShrub Corpsâ â and weâd also like to find a good âBranch Manager.â
So if you have a plant costume, and/or you are interested in helping, or you have any ideas on the best way to get the word out during the convention, please write to Lisa@windowbox.com.
The âShrubs Against Bushâ website isnât done yet â weâll let everyone know when we get it together.
Thanks, and Plants to the People!
