Roots of Change is urging people to sign onto the petition at Food Democracy Now, which urges President-Elect Obama to nominate a Secretary of Agriculture who will be a strong advocate for family farms and sustainable practices. Check it out and join in if you agree. You might also be interested in signing the Declaration for Healthy Food and Agriculture. Roots of Change is starting a campaign to have this petition at every farmers’ market in the state … we will probably have it available at the Ukiah market soon in case you would rather sign on paper.
