However, the biggest problems and the means to overcome them lie in the laps of our incompetent and corrupt leaders. If we really want to see lasting change it’s going to take more than just buying more expensive organic foods we need to start lobbying our representatives in Washington to change legislation to benefit us, and not their own special interests or the corporations of whom they’re in the pockets of.

The Farm Bill is revised every 5 years and the current Farm Bill is set to expire in 2012. Now is the time to make your voices heard.
