Rural Vermont’s final Advocacy Day of the 2019 legislative session will be co-hosted by NOFA-VT. These events offer a great opportunity to meet your legislator, get oriented to the State House and the legislative process, and learn more about the issues and bills pertaining to agriculture and food systems.
Although we don’t know the specifics yet of what will be happening in the State House that day, we can guarantee you will have a chance to learn more about the legislative process, meet your legislators, observe committees in action and possibly witness final votes on the floor of the House and Senate. If you are interested, there may also be the opportunity to provide testimony on an issue you care about. RSVP now so we can keep you informed about the plans for the day. We also have a limited number of Farmer Stipends to help offset the costs of taking a day away from the farm. AND as a special treat, (and effective lure for legislators) we will have delicious donuts courtesy of Miss Weinerz. Thank you Ren!
