Day of action to green the farm bill

Please join Food and Water Watch?s Fair Farm Bill Campaign, City Rising Farm, Blaine Avenue Community Garden and The Green Triangle for a Day of Action at City Rising Farm. Refreshments provided.

RSVP here.

The Fair Farm Bill Campaign in Cleveland and our partners invite the community to come out to help City Rising Farm get prepared for its Spring planting season and take action for a fair farm bill. We will be working at City Rising?s permaculture garden location and learning more about why the farm bill is so important and what we can do to shift the power away from big corporations and back in to the hands of our farmers and eaters. The Farm Bill is a piece for federal legislation that governs all the agricultural policy in the country. It comes through congress once every 5 years and 2012 is one of those years. City Rising Farm?s mission is to help people in underserved communities learn to grow fresh local food and build healthy long lasting relationships with each other so they can use those skills and relationships to create opportunities in their own neighborhoods.
