Join us to learn about the 2018 Farm Bill

Sunday, October 29, 2017, 12 pm - 2 pm

Calling all small-scale and environmentally-responsible farmers, urban and rural! Join MCE, Missouri Farmers Union, Illnois Farmers Union, and EarthDance to learn how the Farm Bill benefits you, what is at stake in the 2018 Farm Bill, and why your voice matters!

A new Farm Bill will be rolling out in 2018. The Farm Bill does not only support large-scale or industrial farmers! It has several programs that can benefit you, including:
- Programs that foster the next generation of farmers & foster inclusion and equity
- Programs that spur economic development, regional food systems, and food access
- Programs that support farmers to supply the expanding organic market
- Programs that protect farmers' soil and water resources

Speakers include:
Tom Bryant of the National Farmers Union
Molly Rockamann of EarthDance Organic Farm School

The event is free and lunch will be provided. Register here so we can order enough food: www.moenvironment.org/2018farmbillforum.

Stick around after to network with other farmers and meet the members of the St. Louis Food Policy Coalition, a stakeholder group convened by MCE working to support farmers like you.
