Community members have been protesting against the development of the historic Gill Tract Farm for 20 years.
In response to community outcry in 2012, Whole Foods pulled out of the Gill Tract development project and instead built in an empty building 2 blocks away. The UC is trying replacing them with a new anchor tenant: Sprout’s “Farmers Market”. Sprouts calls itself a farmer’s market, but is actually a union-busting, big box chain store that ships in produce from all over the globe. If a market is to be built at the Gill Tract, we want a real farmer’s market that is builds toward a more resilient local economy.
Help us put pressure on Sprouts to pull out from the Gill Tract! Join us in letting them know that we see through their greenwashing and demand better.
