An Update from DC on The Homegrown Organic Bill From Colin O’Neil, Legislative Director at EWG.
Please join us on January 23, at noon EST for a Facebook Live event with Colin O’Neil, Legislative Director at EWG. He will give a quick update on the recently introduced Homegrown Organic Act, which was introduced by Rep. Kuster (D-N.H.) and Sen. Casey (D-PA). The Homegrown Organic Act of 2017 (H.R. 3637 and S. 2215) would modify existing voluntary agricultural conservation programs to better assist producers who want to switch to organic. The simple changes called for in the bill will provide transitioning producers with valuable technical and financial assistance, as well as make more farmland available to producers wanting to farm organically. Join in the conversation, get more information and ask questions live.
