Land stewards are strong, still need support

Many people like to glorify the efforts of small-scale, diversified producers of quality food.  They like to point to the willingness of these growers to work with, rather than against, nature.  Some, myself included, believe that this sort of farming, using many of the principles of agroecology, is a key component for building a healthier, more just world.

Iowa Updates: April 2022

Issues: 

We are standing at the gateway to another growing season, and with it comes a whole host of changes in the life of a farmer.  When the gate of Spring opens, I find that the time for planning comes to an end and the moment for doing begins in earnest. In the spirit of doing, I want to get right to the content I wanted to share with you this April.

Iowa Updates: March 2022

Issues: 

We all lead lives that are busy in their own ways, so it makes sense that it can be difficult to engage in an extra activity, no matter how much we might agree with its purpose.  In my case, it is my job to be involved.  But it is also my job — and the job of organizations like IFU and PAN — to  encourage you to become engaged in these processes with me. This is why IFU holds lobby day events, and it explains why PAN sends out these state newsletters.  Each group is doing what it can to provide access and opportunity so that you can speak up and feel that your voice is heard.  Let me encourage you, once again, toward a life of engagement and a life that works to make things better for all of us.
