World Food Day is coming up on October 16th. In honor of food eaters everywhere we want to celebrate World Food Day by presenting UBC President Stephen Toope with 10,000 names on our Save the Farm petition, and we need your help. To date we have collected roughly 7,000 signatures. This means that in the next two weeks we must collect 3,000 new names to meet our goal.
How You Can Help:
~ First, sign it yourself! You can find the online petition here.
~ If you’ve already signed, thanks for your support. There’s no need to sign again; in fact it’s counter-productive so please don’t! But if you’re already in, how about finding 10 new signatures?
~ Remember, this is a community petition, and is not restricted to people associated with UBC. Anyone can sign, so email a link to the online petition to your friends, neighbors, relatives near and far, and ask them to join with us in fighting to preserve Vancouver’s last working Farm.
~ If you’re interested in circulating a petition at your workplace, school, church, neighborhood, or local businesses, you can download a printable version here: Save the Farm Petition (PDF). Completed petitions can be returned to the Farm in person or by mail (address is at the bottom of the petition).
Remember, we need 10,000 by October 16th, so get them in quickly. With your help, we can look forward to many years of farm-goodness!
