will operate a profitable food production project that demonstrates and educates people about
ecological & sustainable concepts.

This petition addresses the fundamental approach to self sustainable communities totally ignored and
addressed in the 120 page Sustainable Neighborhood Concept Plan Drafted for Community Review May 11,
2009 when Brian Lutz was Mayor.

We the undersigned being residents of Fort St. John, surrounding areas and Canadian citizens
enthusiastically & whole heartedly support the need and want for a Permaculture & Aquaponics Eco
Farm in Fort St. John. The purpose of which is to:

1 Supply affordable, fresh, healthy, tasty, nutritious, locally, produced food year around to the
residents of F.S.J. and surrounding areas. Fish, vegetables, fruit, herbs, spices & medicinal
plants.

2 Build an ecologically designed, energy efficient, straw bale multiuse facility. Agriculture
Research Institute, Extension Services, Demonstration and Educational Center. The facility will
house relevant offices, boardroom, library, commercial kitchen, restaurant & coffee shop, walk in
cooler and Hall Rental.

3 The Eco Farm will become a permanent year around home for the Farmers Market, Horticulture Group,
Community Gardens, Environmental, Ecology, 4H and other relevant or interested groups and
organizations. A vermiculture farm will recycle, save 70% of the organic waste from the landfill. As
well as produce organic soil amendments, to build healthy soil and organic fertilizers and
pesticides for plants (flowers, vegetables & fruit).

4 Fort St. John will become a true resilient energetic city, having increased its resource
efficiency, reducing its ecological footprint and empowering its citizens throughout all suburban
communities by helping achieve local food security, aiding community health and well being, while
helping save trees, energy and the environment.

5 The proposed project will engage the entire community in hands on learning about sustainability
issues via Permaculture education. The Eco Farm will contain various food gardens with informative
signage, as well as displays of sustainable products, services and community art projects.

6 The Eco Farm will be a venue for providing hands on education in food growing and production via
sustainable concepts, for all educational institutions and the wider community. Teachers, students,
researchers, tourists and other interested people will have an opportunity to engage in gardens
design, creation, maintenance, and food harvesting with their work guided by professionals and
volunteers.

7 The Eco building and surrounding property will become home to community events such as
conferences, workshops, forums, lectures, symposiums and Annual Permaculture Earth Day Fair.
