Creating Our 2012 Farm Bill--
For a Healthy, Fair Food System and New Opportunities
Speaker: Margaret Krome, Policy Program Director,
Michael Fields Agricultural Institute
What's important to include in the next Farm Bill? How do we best advocate for provisions that will support new farmers, local food, land stewardship, fair markets, good research and extension, a constructive safety net for farmers, and enough money going to nutrition assistance programs?
Join us for a delicious potluck dinner followed by our speaker and a lively discussion.
