The gardens at Lawson Place are destined to be removed by
Greene Metropolitan Housing Authority (GMHA) on October 1, 2012.
We have tried to negotiate and compromise with GMHA for the past 2 months, but to no avail.
Now we need your help!
Please come to our Rally/March on Sunday, September 9, at 2 PM.
We will meet at the John Bryan Community Center
and march, with protest signs, to Lawson Place.
There, you will be able to tour the gardens and express your support.
(Come early and make your own sign with supplies available)
We also need community members to write letters of support to HUD.
The gardens in question have been cultivated by residents for many years and provide them with beauty, food, a therapeutic activity, and pride in their homes.
Please send letters of support, emails, phone calls to:
