The 2012 Farm Bill Forum: Stewardship, Prosperity, and Fairness

Every five years, a massive piece of legislation called the Farm Bill determines how tens of billions of dollars will be spent to shape American agriculture and rural communities. Join us on February 23rd at the Des Moines Chapter of the Izaak Walton League to learn how the Farm Bill impacts our food, soil, air, water and budgets, and how you can shape sustainable food and farm priorities. Additionally, we look forward to hearing your thoughts on Iowa's Farm Bill conservation priorities.
