Monday, NO Farms, NO Food! came in the top 10 out of a field of 2,500+ ideas on Change.org: No Farm No Food: Save the Land that Sustains Us.
the state budget in the state of New York is $134B, and farming receives a scant .4 of 1%, about $100M of that. and with proposed budget cuts looming, there is a very real threat to our greatest natural resources, our crop fields, our pastures, and topsoil, our animals, our communities.
You can really make a difference on this:
1.) Sign the petition.
2.) Pick up the phone, it will take a few minutes and is so very important. To find your representatives: http://assembly.state.ny.us/mem/, http://www.nysenate.gov/districts/map.
