The Healthy Farms, Healthy People Coalition was happy to be mentioned along with steering committee member organization, the California Food and Justice Coalition, on KPFA’s Terra Verde radio program on the Farm Bill and the Environment.
Some call the Farm Bill the United States’ biggest piece of environmental legislation. It is renewed once every five years, and the current bill expires September 30, 2012. Terra Verde looks at the conservation titles in the bill and other elements with environmental implications. Guests: Ben Burkett, President of the National Family Farm Coalition in Washington, DC, and a farmer in Mississippi and Daniel Imhoff, author of Food Fight: The Citizen’s Guide to a Food and Farm Bill, Director and Co-Founder of Watershed Media in Healdsburg, California.
