What’s at stake here? Critical assistance for organic farmers through the National Organic Certification Cost-Share Program. If we don’t act NOW, this program could be completely defunded — stripping farmers of a vital source of support in helping meet growing demand for organic food and to create local jobs.
The Come to the Table Project will present its fourth regional conference series on how people of faith can relieve hunger and support local agriculture in North Carolina. A project of the Rural Advancement Foundation (RAFI-USA) and the NC Council of Churches, this conference will be held at Southwestern Community College on Friday, March 15th from 8:30am-4:00pm.
