Posted: July 10 2012

via the Organic Farming Research Foundation
The House Agriculture Committee will decide TOMORROW, July 11th, the fate of the Farm Bill for the next 5 years.
Congress must hear from you TODAY about your support of organic programs.
Call Members of the House Agriculture Committee TODAY and ask that they:

  • Please FULLY FUND the National Organic Certification Cost Share program to meet the urgent needs of organic farmers in all 50 states.
  • Please make Organic Crop Insurance equitable for organic farmers by reducing obstacles that are applied to them specifically.
  • Please FUND the National Organic Program at $15 million to ensure the integrity of organics.

If your Representative is not on the House Agriculture Committee, call Committee Chairman Frank Lucas at (202) 225-5565 and Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson at (202) 225-2165.
It's an easy call that ensures your family's access to healthy organic food for many years to come.
Thrive Organically,
Maureen Wilmot
Executive Director
P.S. Bringing the organic message home.
