In December 2006, this island was founded by Wilson A Biggs, (1999-Still Living) to be used for growing only these greens: Alph-alpha, Lettuce, Cabbage, and Spinach. The GGAONY-NJ-PA (Green Growing Association Of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania) were the only ones allowed to grow plants there. Every day they would go there by a private ferry called the GPF (Green Plant Ferry) and water, fertelize, and make sure the plants are okay. It is still used for those purposes. Probably in May 2007 they will be using half the crops for the poor people, like as planned for March, but changed.
