Farm Bill Follow-Up

I posted not too long ago about the Farm bill that's up for renewal this year. Here's a list of resources on the topic from Michael Pollan:




I've been getting a lot of questions from readers about the Farm Bill-- what sort of changes I'd like to see, and how people can get more involved. Since I'm a journalist, not an activist or policymaker, I don't feel qualified to offer specific policy recommendations. But for those interested in learning more about the Farm Bill and following the debate, I've put together some resources you might find useful. These will also be posted on the 'linking' page of my website, here: http://michaelpollan.com/link.htm. From what people in Washington tell me, we shouldn't underestimate the power of letters, calls, and emails to our representatives.
