Funding organic programs a priority

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Your actions today help to ensure the production of healthy organics for you, your family and all generations to come.

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Your actions today help to ensure the production of healthy organics for you, your family and all generations to come.

We ask you to call upon Congress to fund critical organic research and conservation programs today.

Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., sits on the agricultural committee that influences which farm programs receive funding. Now’s the time for you to make the production of organic food a priority. The cuts made today may prevent us from having healthy organic food for decades to come.

It’s easy. Call Conrad’s office at 202-224-2043.

Call on leaders

Talk to a person, or leave a message. The important thing is to make contact.

The points to make are simple:

- I am your constituent. I want you to support funding for critical organic research and conservation programs in the deficit reduction bill. I want you to support organic farming for the health and prosperity of our country.

- Organic research programs are the foundation of one of the most rapidly growing economic sectors in our nation. It is the scientific backbone for organic agriculture — ensuring job creation, economic growth and our family’s health.

- We already have cut too much from conservation and environmental programs.

Editor’s Note: The Organic Farming Research Foundation is an organization that works to promote the improvement and adoption of organic farming systems.
