Do you have a few hours to make a BIG difference for organic? Attending the upcoming Farm Bill roundtable discussion with House Agriculture Committee members Congressman Jimmy Panetta (CA-20), Congressman Jim Costa (CA-16), and Ranking Member Congressman Collin Peterson (MN-07) in Salinas, CA is one of the most important things you can do to give organic producers and processors a voice in shaping our nation’s food and agricultural policy. On Thursday, August 10, Organic Trade Association is asking you to attend and advocate directly for Farm Bill policies that promote a healthy organic marketplace, ensure that organic farmers continue to be successful, and expand organic production.

This is one of a few limited opportunities for organic stakeholders to get in front of the Committee and highlight priorities for our sector. All of the organic programs are vulnerable this Farm Bill cycle, and we have to be diligent in advocating for them. Contact Megan Debates to learn more.
