Three legislative farm tours are in the books! A special thanks goes out to Angelic Organics and Angelic Organics Learning Center, Epiphany Farms,and All Grass Farms, for the experience. We applaud you for your commitment to sustainability and conservation.
This summer, the Alliance and the Illinois Environmental Council partnered together to invited legislators to attend farm tours in their districts to offer a first-hand educational experience to see soil health practices in action, talk about conservation, and discuss the role that state agencies, like the Soil Water and Conservation Districts (SWCD), play in assisting farmers. Our hope is that the the newly fostered relationships help to bridge the gap and encourage the General Assembly to assist and support activities and long-term goals of our farmers and of the state conservation agencies.
We appreciate Representative Joe Sosnowski, Rep. Keith Sommer, Rep. Anna Moeller, and Rep. Allen Skillicorn for taking the time to join us for a tour in their district.
