Nick's Organic Farm in MD may be the only one of its kind in the nation. But in just 6 days, it could be no more. Montgomery Co wants to turn this 32-year-old farm & educational center into soccer fields. Tell the Co to build its soccer fields elsewhere.

My comment: "I strongly urge you not to destroy Nick's Organic Farm and Brickyard Educational Farm, two necessary and invaluable community resources, in order to build soccer fields, for which there are better locations." Thanks, Susan, for posting this petition!

Food not Lawns, or soccer fields! Why displace a 32 year old farm? Seed saving, organic seed saving, is so important, and so rare these days. Please protect this precious educational farm. *signed*

Signed. Leave Nick's farm alone it is too valuable to be shut down. Use wasteland to build soccerfields.

YIPEE! -- good news -- Judge puts hold on takeover of the farm. Let's keep pushing to make it permanent and I'll update the petition.

After Nick's Organic Farm is saved, see if they can become a "franchise" in every State:).

Sandra - GREAT IDEA.

Anyone who wants to contact Mayor O'Malley to see if there's a way for Nick to buy that land and keep it as a permanent fixture in Maryland, here is the contact info-- also if you want to thank him for supporting this important farm:
