Local Food Farming Bill

​The 2012 Farm Bill is fast approaching, and our Congress has an opportunity to make some important changes to fix our broken down food system and farming trends. It’s an excellent time to give the people healthy local food they’ve been asking for (which in turn will help decrease the declining health of American individuals), and will boost the farmers’ income in the process from the increased demand. I’d say this is win-win-win for the American public, our farmers, as well as the government.

Awesome in theory, it will be a challenge to get this bill passed. For more information go to the Environmental Working Group’s website: Local Food and the Farm Bill: Small Investments, Big Returns
