On May 13, 2022, farmers, non-profits, food advocates, and food-sector professionals gathered in Plymouth, NH to support and strengthen the local food system that works for all in the Granite State.
The NH Food Alliance is part of the University of New Hampshire’s Sustainability Institute. The alliance’s many members are dedicated to a food system that supports the people, businesses, communities, and the environment we all rely on.
The following resources are from the Farm Bill breakout session of the Statewide Gathering. These links, reports, and tools are used by permission of each entity, unless already in the public domain.
American Farmland Trust (AFT) has three priorities: Protecting agricultural land, promoting environmentally sound farming practices, and keeping farmers on the land.
AFT recognizes the connection between the land, forward-looking farming practices, and the farmers and ranchers who do the work. It also recognizes the power of combining on-the-ground projects with objective research and effective advocacy.
The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) is an alliance of over 130 grassroots organizations that advocates for federal policy reform to advance the sustainability of agriculture, food systems, natural resources, and rural communities.
NSAC’s vision of agriculture is one where a safe, nutritious, ample, and affordable food supply is produced by a legion of family farmers who make a decent living pursuing their trade, while protecting the environment, and contributing to the strength and stability of their communities.
