Supply St-Anne-de-Bellevue residents with seeds to start their own vegetable gardens

Did you know that on average, produce grown in North America travels 2000km from source point to the point of sale?
In the Greater Montreal Area, most cities offer free compost to their residents in the spring and summer, including Beaconsfield, Kirkland, Baie d’Urfe, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, and many more. This petition has been created in order to make a change and ask the city of St-Anne’s to provide its residents with free seeds, which would be given when people come to collect their compost, that they can use to start their own small vegetable gardens. This will hopefully encourage residents to build gardens at home, expand them as the season goes on, and eventually eat the food coming right out of their backyards instead of from the nearest grocery store.
This project would have an immensely positive impact on the issue of global warming, seeing as eating locally grown food eliminates the tonnes and tonnes of carbon dioxide that are released into the atmosphere when food is shipped across the world to finally reach our local supermarkets.
