August 20: Hudson Valley Farmers Forum

Time: 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Location: Columbia Greene Community College, Student Dining Hall
National Young Farmers' Coalition announcement below:
This will be a rare opportunity to hear from politicians and local experts about federal and state ag policies. Come ask the questions that have been on your mind, let your elected officials know what's important to you, and interact and hear from other farmers. The Farmers Forum is our chance as an agricultural community to tell our elected officials how they can support new farmers in the Hudson Valley. Bring your questions and concerns! We deserve farm policy that supports, not hinders, our ability to make a life farming in the Valley.
Representative Gibson, Senator Saland, and Assemblywoman Barrett, as well as Gillibrand's ag aid, are all scheduled to attend.
RSVP for this great opportunity here.
