Why bother?

I’m asked why I put so much into this one issue, the Garden City Lands.

Well, it seems to me that a large green space on the edge of a city centre is better than urban sprawl there and that nothing is safe in an agricultural land reserve if its guardian gives up fertile land just because big speculators flex their muscles. But, beyond that, it’s a matter of community empowerment:

I’m involved
in this complex issue
to enable well-meaning people,
as individuals who also form a critical mass,
to take informed action to get results
in political and other ways,
making a difference
for local food security,
ecological responsibility,
self-fostering community,
and so much more that keeps
unfolding.
