June 3 – The Farm Bill: why you should care.
What Does the Farm Bill Have to Do with Me and Why Do I Need to Know about It?
Congress is busy hashing out the details for the 2012 Farm Bill which will have important implications for food and agriculture for the next five years. This is an opportunity for those committed to good, clean and fair food for all to make changes in our food system—by participating in the Food Bill debate and by actively supporting local food. A panel of policy activists will tell us how.
Join us for a stimulating afternoon of conversation, good food, and a book signing!
