The Northwest Farm Bill Action Group presents

Farm Bill 101:

an introductory workshop on the largest piece of US food and farm policy

This presentation is available to community organizations, schools, places of worship, and other organizations as a tool for learning about and engaging in federal food policy issues.

In an approximately one hour long interactive presentation, you will learn:
• History of the Farm Bill and industrial agriculture
• Impacts of the Farm Bill on our lives and communities
• What you can do about it!

Reviews from past audiences: “The presenters were very well-organized and made the Farm Bill accessible.” “Group work and lecture were both great – handouts were greatly appreciated.” “Really liked the conversational aspect. It is great to be able to ask questions and have discussions throughout.”

Whenever possible, we suggest a donation of $50-$100 to cover materials, presenters’ time, and travel costs associated with the workshop; however, no groups are turned away for lack of funds.
