Local Agriculture is a Platform Issue

LOCAL FOOD PRODUCTION – Among all our goals, the ability to feed ourselves with local food is the most basic. Only about 4% of our food is currently produced in Jefferson County. Protecting and supporting local food production must be an essential part of our planning, and we embrace policies that protect all farmlands from encroachment and conversion to non-farming.

To join the people who will be leading research and action on this important topic, contact Ellen O’Shea, (360) 301-1662, elleno@peak.org.

Focus groups forming within this committee:

  1. Making Local Farming Sustainable
  2. GMO/Toxic Farming/Toxins in Food/Protection Against Toxins in Environment
