My daughter Violet Who is 11 asked me to start this petition on her behalf. Please read below. Thank you for signing and sharing.
"When my mother drives me to school I see new homes everywhere. In order to build new homes, farms are being sold. Trees are being taken down. Almost every street we go down has development signs.
I sometimes help my teacher with her booth at the local Farmer's Market. Most of the vendors sell produce purchased from the Food Terminal or come from other communities because there is no land for local farmers.
Please sign my petition in order to require a minimum area in every community to be preserved for farming and park lands."
