The April 4th Meeting

What a night. An overflow crowd mostly dressed in green to support Nick's Organic Farm and public process filled the PES cafeteria on Monday night, only to be told that the lease between the BOE and County would be signed the next morning.

What can you do now? Sign on to a letter to Ike Leggett, proposing that the County form a Food Policy Council with Nick's Organic Farm as the anchor for an Ag/Food Education Hub. Click here. Please share this petition far and wide- we have 600 signatures now, keep em coming- we want 1000! We are sending the lists of names along to Ike as they come in. Share our petition on Facebook!

The event garnered a lot of great press, there is some great video and articles below. If you have your own video, send it along- brickyardblogmontgomery@gmail.com. The pursuit for process continues...
