Support Sustainable Farming: Save ATTRA!

Due to a delay in Congressional budget decisions, specifically the Ag Appropriations bill, our beloved National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service (ATTRA) is again in desperate need of funding help.

ATTRA supplies our nation's farmers with a central location to which they can turn for invaluable information and resources to help them in their efforts to incorporate more sustainable practices into their operations. Many small farmers depend on ATTRA to supply funding and learning opportunities, and ATTRA in turn depends on a federal grant for the means to stay up and running.

To avoid staff cuts or a further reduction in services (they are currently unable to mail their newsletter, conduct workshops, provide research services to callers, or continue their many publications), they are soliciting donations. Click here if you are able to contribute. Even just $25 will help!
