Today is Conservation Call-In Day

about the Food and Farm Bill.

The Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, along with American Farmland Trust and other national conservation and environment organizations, have all sent out emails asking you to call your senators today...but you can still call up to Oct. 23.
The Senate Agriculture Committee is scheduled to begin its markup of the 2007 farm bill on October 23. Basic funding decisions have been discussed by Senators on the Committee during informal meetings that have already taken place. In the course of these meetings, it has become increasingly clear that funding for conservation is getting the short end of the stick relative to other sections of the bill. The funding levels currently being discussed by Committee Members are far lower than what is needed for a decent conservation title.
The American Farmland Trust has set up a page where you can quickly find your senator’s office phone number.
