Many thanks to Mayor Brown and also to the City Council for their unanimous support in approving "Phase 0" of the Bernal Community Farm Park. Also thanks to the many citizens of Pleasanton for their enthusiastic support and giving a very high 78% "Important" rating to the overall Community Farm project (44% "Extremely Important" or "Very Important"!) in the City of Pleasanton 2021 Community Survey. There is much work ahead to make this happen, but "To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow" - Audrey Hepburn.
