Organic Agriculture in the 2018 Farm Bill

March 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Free

Federal policy plays a critical role in supporting organic production systems. Later this year, Congress intends to pass the next Farm Bill, which will shape agricultural policy and investments for the next five years. Now is the time to focus on how to defend and strengthen key programs and policies that benefit organic producers.

This webinar will provide updates from Washington, D.C. and dig into policies ranging from working lands conservation and crop insurance to research trade oversight and certification cost share.

In addition to digging into the specific programs that matter for organic producers, we’ll discuss strategies and opportunities to advocate for changes and improvements we hope to see included in the 2018 Farm Bill.

Speakers:

  • Alyssa Charney, Policy Specialist, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition
  • Megan Debates, Director of Legislative Affairs and Coalitions, Organic Trade Association
  • Paul Wolfe, Senior Policy Specialist, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition

Moderator:

  • Chris Schreiner, Executive Director, Oregon Tilth
