5 decades before another action alert

Sounds good? 

Yes, well, if Wendell Berry and Wes Jackson have their way, you would only get farm bill reform alerts from the Hunger Program every half century!

That’s because the changes in agricultural production they laid out on January 5 are based on ecological principles as opposed to the desires of agribusiness. They also are grounded in the great research on perennials done by Jackson’s Land Institute and on Berry’s sage advice on agrarianism (here is a choice morsel from Orion magazine – The Agrarian Standard).
May our new leadership in Washington take heed!
