Thanks to the efforts of the Northwest Farm Bill Action Group, the Department of Urban Planning and Design in the College of Built Environments, University of Washington and our co-sponsors there is no charge or this event!
The Farm Bill is perhaps the single most significant land use legislation enacted in the United States, yet many citizens remain unaware of its power and scope. As debate and wrangling over the 2012 Farm Bill intensifies, Dan Imhoff will offer a highly informative and engaging overview of the legislation that literally shapes our food system, our bodies, and our future.
The Northwest Farm Bill Action Group, a primary sponsor of this event, is a new alliance which provides the space for people and organizations to educate themselves about the 2012 Food and Farm Bill and to transform the bill to work for healthy farms, communities and food for everyone. The NW Farm Bill Action Group is undertaking innovative research and outreach efforts to help those wanting to shape the next Food and Farm Bill.
