Michigan Farm Bill Forum
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 the Izaak Walton League of America and the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition on Tuesday, March 27th at the Cannon Township Hall in Rockford, Michigan to learn how the Farm Bill impacts our food, soil, air, water and budgets, share your thoughts on Michigan’s Farm Bill priorities, and discover how you can help shape sustainable food and farm policies.
Panel speakers will discuss local food, nutrition, and conservation programs within the Farm Bill beginning at 2 pm.
After a short local food reception at 4 pm, we will host a Citizens’ Session with an overview of the Farm Bill and advocacy training.
This event is free and open to the public, and food will be provided. However, an RSVP is required.
