Zoo New England, under pressure from the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), has formally asked City Soil to leave their land in Mattapan.
City Soil staff has a meeting with Secretary Sullivan on Wednesday, May 14th, but the formal eviction letter is not a good sign. Before the meeting we need to make sure that Governor Patrick understands that our community stands with City Soil;
ON TUESDAY, May 13th, please call AND e-mail Governor Patrick and respectfully ask him to stop the eviction of City Soil.
Please let Everett of City Soil (firstname.lastname@example.org) know when you've called/emailed so that they can keep track of our impact.
If the meeting does not go well, there will be a rally on Saturday:
Rally to #SaveCitySoil!
SATURDAY, MAY 17th
City Soil & Greenhouse site
415 American Legion Highway, Mattapan 02126
Stay tuned to learn how the meeting goes and if we will need to mobilize. Thank you so much for your support!
