Slocum Gibbs Cranberry, Alex Johnson Cranberry, EJ Pontiff Cranberry and many others are carrying out massive mining projects under the ruse of building cranberry bogs. Other companies like SLT Construction use ruse of a “subdivision” to get permits.

We are educating local governments about the impacts of poorly sited industrial solar facilities and battery storage.
We are demanding accountability and transparency — and making a difference by working with a diverse coalition of community members. Join us!
