    Hi We all signed a letter against the Constitution Pipeline at our Franklin Farmer’s Market. Perhaps other Markets might like to do the same? Here’s the letter. Probably should get addresses and emails as we might have to file each separately.
    Friends of Franklin Farmer’s Market, Franklin NY

    We the undersigned are opposed to the proposed Constitution Pipeline cutting through our private lands; forests, fields and streams, as it will be the infrastructure for Fracking and not, as advertised, a closed supply line. Allowing Constitution Pipeline will be the first step towards industrializing our pristine land from which we earn our livelyhoods and as customers procure healthy, fresh, local food; vegetables, meats, milk, cheese, yogurt, fish, fruits, grains as well as wool, leather, wood, flowering plants, and the many value added products made from them.

    We stand with PASA(Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture), and NOFA (Northeast Organic Farming Association) against High Volume High Pressure Horizontal Methane extraction and all of the accompanying pipelines, compressor stations, storage facilities, liquefaction plants and cracking facilities that break down components to manufacture plastics and other petrochemicals. We object because none of these activities have been proven safe for water, air, soil or the continuance of local agriculture, tourism, hunting, fishing and other land based occupations.

    We believe our local food sheds and water sheds should be protected against degradation from short-sighted, dangerous fossil fuel extraction that undermines our ability to sustain our lives and families in a peaceful rural setting.
