Self-reliance and sustainability in the 21st century.
Here's your chance to protect the future of American agriculture: Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) is taking entries for their New Voices Competition. If you have a vision for a new direction in agriculture, one that combines profitability, land and water stewardship, and a better connection between farmers and the communities around them, speak up.
Entrants can submit their ideas in an essay of 700-1,000 words, or in an audio/video format five to 10 minutes long. There's even a photo contest. Click here for more details and a complete set of rules. Winners will present their ideas in the closing session of SARE's 20th Anniversary Conference in Kansas City, Mo., and will see their plan in various SARE publications.
