(ALERT OVER) – Demand Change — Reform the USDA’s Organic ProgramFebruary 14th, 2009
We need change at the USDA, or the “People’s Department,” as President Lincoln so aptly called this agency.
We need new management to create a culture supporting the thousands of ethical organic family farmers, and their consumer allies, who have built the vibrant organic agricultural and foodmarket.
The timing is exquisite for the new Obama administration and the USDA to hear the serious concerns of the organic community.
Please join with Cornucopia members and supporters in expressing the need for reform of the USDA’s organic program. Click on this link to go to a letter to sign that we will then hand deliver to new USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack and President Obama. Please mail and return your signed letter to us at PO Box 126, Cornucopia, WI 54827.
