2007 Farm Bill
The 2007 Farm Bill is in the making. Organic farms and farmers are not faring well in the current draft. This blog post summarizes it pretty well. This chart and review gives you more nitty gritty information to work with. If you'd like to support better funding for organic farming, you can sign this petition. The deadline is July 15.
