Vote for Community Gardens and Nutrition Education

  In 2012, the Vallejo City Council established the first city-wide Participatory Budgeting (PB) process in the United States. Through PB, the community is helping to decide how to spend $3.2 million of revenue from the Measure B Sales Tax. From May 11th through May 18th, Vallejo residents 16 years of age and older will vote on which projects will get dibbs on $3.2 million. To those who can vote, please use one of your six votes to support:   "Community Gardens and Nutrition Education" Our proposal is to develop ten gardens across Vallejo to serve as safe spaces to grow food, beautify neighborhoods, educate kids, and prevent crime. PB Voting Days: May 11-18th, 2013 VOTING LOCATIONS AND HOURS Sat., May 11, 10 am - 6 pm Florence Douglas Senior Center 333 Amador St. Mon. - Fri., May 13 - 17, 12 pm - 7 pm Vallejo City Hall 555 Santa Clara St. Sat., May 18, 10 am - 6 pm Vallejo Adult School 2833 Tennessee St.
