The 2012 Farm Bill Will Be Proposed By Nov. 1st!

Once every 5 years, you have the opportunity to shape the direction of agriculture policy in the United States. The Farm Bill is the primary legislative tool to invest in organic farming, and it is on a fast-tracked schedule for being written by November 1st!

Congress has the opportunity to create a Farm Bill that invests in organic agriculture, and therefore in economic growth across America, environmental stewardship, and health for our communities. Emails to Congress TODAY absolutely will shape agriculture tomorrow.

Please sign this petition to call on the Agriculture Committees of Congress to support organic farming for the health and prosperity of our country.

      Organic agriculture is actually a return to the simple/low tech sustainable practices of my childhood -- which help the earth & animals and result in healthier food for us. Rather than wearing out our land, organic ag practices could actually save us.

      I believe in Organic farming and I value our health over the wealth of the industry to mass produce without any regard to the environment. Organic Farming is safe not only for me as a individual but, it's safe for the HEALTH of our environment.
