Why Sustainable Agriculture Should Support a Green New Deal

Published January 14th, 2019 by Independent Science News: Why Sustainable Agriculture Should Support a Green New Deal, a new article by Elizabeth Henderson

Synopsis: An alliance of social movements and members of Congress led by Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) are proposing a Green New Deal that would initiate an emergency mobilization to address economic inequities and reverse our blind march toward catastrophic climate change. The sustainable agriculture movement with its many organizations and individuals should become active shapers of it, to ensure that it includes regenerating soil health, reinventing parity payments with supply management for farmers, and that farm workers are not excluded from the just transition, writes Elizabeth Henderson.
