Passionate Supporters Ensure Sustainable Ag Funding Wins
For nearly twenty years, Michael Fields Agricultural institute has been an active player in the process of seeking funding for federal programs that support sustainable agriculture. Once, two national policy groups merged in 2009 to form the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition — MFAI applied that experience to helping NSAC coordinate its grassroots appropriations campaign, working with the best policy and grassroots leaders around the nation and in NSAC’s Washington, D.C. office.
Michael Fields Participates in 2014 Nelson Institute Earth Day Conference
MFAI Policy Program staff attended the April 22nd Earth Day event at the Monona Terrace in Madison, WI. The event, hosted by the UW-Madison Nelson Institute, was aptly titled “Earth: To Be Determined – Economy, Ecology, and Justice in a Rapidly Changing World” and focused heavily on the environmental effects – both negative and potentially positive — of modern society.
