PODCAST: 2023 Farm Bill: Creating healthier future for farming, food

(PUBLIC NEWS SERVICE) – Congress must pass a 2023 Farm Bill before the end of the year, a measure which not only impacts farming but also what’s on our plates.

The Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association has a vision of a future where local food nourishes communities and agricultural practices protect the environment.

Christine Hughes, board member of the Association’s policy-steering committee and owner of Village Bakery and CafĂ© in Athens, said policies promoting soil health through methods such as cover crops and diverse crop rotations will build a more climate-resilient food system.

“These kinds of techniques are needed to be spread further than just the people that are doing the certified organic production,” Hughes asserted.
