TODAY! CITY HALL ROOM 400 at NOON! WEAR YELLOW!
Now is the time to come out and show your support for all that we’ve been building together for the past 6.5 years.
The development proposal for 203 Cotter is being reviewed by the SF Planning Commission, and we need your presence at this hearing to send a strong message to the commissioners that this land is one of San Francisco’s last remaining farmable parcels, and locking up the gate and developing it for private use will be a huge loss of momentum for SF’s urban agriculture movement.
What: A defense of cultivatable soil. A pledge toward the absolute necessity of working urban farms.
When: TODAY, Thursday 9/29 at noon (this item is last on the meeting agenda, so the meeting could very well last into the afternoon. Please do come at noon if you can — a strong showing at the outset of the meeting is crucial — but feel free to drop in later in the afternoon if that’s what you can swing. We’ll need a large presence throughout the afternoon).
Where: City Hall – Room 400
The proposed private school will house 200 students, plus faculty, on this narrow property surrounded by bedroom windows. It will shift this site from a publicly accessible working farm, a valuable site of learning for city residents and a crucial incubator site for aspiring farmers, to a gated multi-building school campus with garden space.
The City of San Francisco has shown great strides in its support for urban agriculture (see some of the City’s legislative support here), and now we need the Planning Commission to continue this momentum. San Francisco wants farmable space; WE NEED FARMS.
See you at City Hall!
