Can you help stand up for organic food and farming in San Antonio, Texas? The Cornucopia Institute needs citizen-lobbyists to testify at the National Organic Standards Board this April 29-30 in San Antonio. You need not be an expert—only dedicated to organic integrity. And your appearance will be brief. Each speaker gets one to four minutes. We will provide you with background information on the issues the Board is considering, testimony, and assistance with logistics.
If you or someone you know is interested in helping out and lives near San Antonio, please consider helping us make the case for organic integrity. Contact Jason Cole at cole(at)cornucopia.org or (608) 625-2000 by April 7.
