1000 Friends is launching an initiative called the New Face of Farming.

The initiative is focused on listening to farmers and ranchers throughout the state to identify land use policy issues that could be adapted to help producers remain viable and profitable (http://www.friends.org/NewFaceofFarming). We will be using your feedback to craft our 2012-2013 legislative agenda so your voice truly matters!

We would like to hear from producers of different sizes and approaches to obtain broad feedback on this issue; small to large, commodity to CSA, livestock to vineyards, etc. Our Portland Metro meeting will take place on the evening of December 12th. Please find complete details below.

Listening sessions are limited to agricultural professionals and RSVPs are required.  If you wish to participate, please contact Ben Gordon, ben@friends.org.
