Petitioning the City of Ithaca

The Gardens is gathering petition signatures to encourage the City of Ithaca to keep the Gardens permanently at our current location at Carpenter Circle, within the newly-designated Market District. We would like to show that there is wide support for this, so whether you garden with us or not, if you value having a large, central community garden in the heart of downtown Ithaca, please print this  petition form and follow the instructions below to collect signatures from your friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances, really from anyone — if you are travelling for the holidays please gather signatures then too!


1. Print this petition form, or if need be call 607-216-8770, leaving a message with your address requesting that we mail you the form.
2. Before someone is added, ask them if they’ve already signed our petition, to minimize duplicates.
3. Accuracy helps! Make sure the name is legible and the full address and date is provided for each entry. Try to fill in most of the lines (12 to a sheet) if you can, then tally, sign and date the bottom line.
4. Please mail completed, signed sheets to Project Growing Hope, PO Box 606, Ithaca, NY 14851.

We greatly appreciate any and all efforts you can give to help the Gardens achieve land permanency.
