Join Us for Launch of Farmland Preservation Flash Mob/Photo Op
Please join us with your fabulous smile and show up for farmland preservation this Thursday (September 29th) at our inaugural RenewLV Farmland Preservation Flashmob/Photo Op!
This will be fun…and easy.
You will arrive by 5:30 p.m. at 4813 Meadowview Terrace in Zionsville (Upper Milford Township, Lehigh County.)
You will hold up or stand near the “Save It – Don’t Pave It” banners.
You will flash that smile of yours for the camera. We will post the photo to social media. Easy-peasy, right?
And, if that doesn’t sound like enough fun, there’s a rumor that someone will be bringing a guitar and leading us in a chorus of “Big Yellow Taxi.” You know the words: “They paved paradise and put up a parking lot…do-wa, do-wa, do-wa!”
Please, invite your kids, friends and neighbors to join us. You don’t have to be a resident of Upper Milford Township to be in the photo. Everyone is invited. We consistently see that when we show up in support of smart growth ideas, change happens.
Maybe afterwards, we’ll all go out together for a bite to eat.
By the way, Upper Milford wins kudos for putting farmland preservation on the ballot in November. Voters will be voting on whether they want a local EIT (Earned Income Tax) to direct toward openspace preservation, including farmland preservation. This is the type of local strategy for which RenewLV advocates. When local dollars are pooled with county dollars, they can be leveraged against state farmland preservation dollars, mobilizing the maximum resources to save our precious farmland.
If you have a farm field in Northampton or Lehigh Counties and would like to schedule a future Farmland Preservation Flash Mob/Photo Op, please let us know. Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Does it make you happy that we are doing this? Would you like to support us, whether or not you can show up on Thursday? We appreciate financial support in any denomination.
