Great Lakes and the Farm Bill

Posted by .

The Healing our Waters Coalition has a new report out detailing participation in the Federal Farm Bill for states around the Great Lakes.  Admittedly, there is not a tremendous amount of farming going on in the Lake Superior watershed, but there is a lot in Minnesota and the health of Lake Superior is connected with the health of the Great Lakes as a whole as well.  The report has some interesting details about how many Minnesota farmers – and how much acreage – have been denied participation due to inadequate funding of the Farm Bill.

You can download the report with this link (PDF).
