The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently developed a site titled Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food, and now you are invited to become involved:
This is the start of a national dialogue between the USDA and you — farmers, ranchers, businesses, community organizations, governments, schools, consumers. Government doesn’t have all the answers — the issues that we’re addressing require local solutions and local resolve. That’’ why we need your help. Send us your ideas and stories about food, agriculture, and local and regional food systems, and we’ll share them. Call, email, write, videotape, photograph, you name it, and thank you for taking the time.
