Preempt local jurisdictions on right of the people to form urban homesteads

This petition had 1,781 supporters

Across the State of Florida every municipality has different rules and regulations for the keeping of backyard poultry, rabbits and gardening. Everyone should have the same right to know where their food comes from and have the same right to raise their own if they choose, without interference from local government. I believe we all have the right to raise our food in a safe and non abusive environment for the animals. This would not only be good for us as individuals, but the local economy would benefit, there would be a need for feed and veterinary services and local farmers markets would boom. There would also be a greater availability of non-GMO, heirloom foods, raised without pesticides and  chemical fertilizers and it would allow us to raise food without fear of steroids, hormones, and antibiotics. We are asking you to make things equal for all Floridians, allow us to have backyard poultry and urban farms. Find us at Florida Urban Agriculture on Facebook.
