Is There a Farm Bill Hearing Near You?

The House Agriculture Committee recently announced a number of Farm Bill hearings in March and April of this year. The hearings will take place in New York, Illinois, Arkansas, and Kansas. See below locations and dates.

This is an opportunity for committee members to hear from YOU about what’s working and not working for farmers, ranchers, and the communities they serve. If you can attend a hearing and need talking points on how the next Farm Bill can better support organic seed systems — and the broader organic community — start with the National Organic Coalition’s platform. If you cannot attend a hearing near you, or if the nearest hearing is, well, far away, you can listen via a webcast (details here).
