I'm posting this again so we can rev up our numbers for these petitions before sending to elected reps. Starting a farmer's market is more labor and money intensive than you might think. Thanks for your support!
Last December, some of us hit the Parkside Plaza and asked you to sign petitions so we could get a permit to use the plaza in front of the Q at Parkside for a farmers market on Friday afternoons. The non-profit Seeds in the Middle is moving towards starting this market and operating two others in the community district - most likely at Hamilton Metz Field and the Empire Blvd entrance to Prospect Park.
SIGN PETITION HERE
If you're one of those fussy people who actually likes to READ a petition before signing it, this is the verbiage, which you'll also fine at the Change.org site.
The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.
