The Farm Bill is up for renewal this year and the time for change is upon us. A regenerative and organic version of the Farm Bill has been introduced by Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.). The Farm & Food Act represents our best hope for saving our farms, our food, and our soil from further degradation. Blumenauer recently gathered financial and policy experts, as well as environmentalists, advocates, and others in a forum to discuss Farm Bill Reform and introduce the Food & Farm Act.
The Food & Farm Act highlights four key principles.
1) Focus resources toward those who need it most
2) Foster innovation
3) Encourage investment in people and the planet
4) Ensure access to healthy foods
