On Tuesday, May 25 the Park Slope Food Coop General Meeting will vote on whether or not the Coop supports a statewide ban on hydraulic fracture gas drilling. If so, we will join the list of organizations on this petition. The Environmental Committee, with the help of other concerned Coop members, plans to reach out and encourage other NYS coops to join in support of a statewide gas drilling ban.
The General Meeting starts at 7pm and is held Congregation Beth Elohim Social Hall (Garfield Temple), 274 Garfield Place between 8th St. and Prospect Park West. Please consider attending this meeting to vote in support of a statewide gas drilling ban.
