The National Day of Action to Save Local Farms is in two days!

Tucson FSMA party

On Wednesday, Arizona farmers gathered at the Conspiracy Co-op in Tuscon, AZ to tell the FDA how new rules will affect their operations.

64 events are being held in 28 states across the country. Farmers and farming supporters are gathering at annual mixers, informal potlucks, farmers markets and even classrooms to talk about how these regulations will impact beginning farmers and to influence change through the FDA’s comment process.

A number of letter-writing parties have already occurred and hundreds of farmers have turned out already. See the list below for upcoming events, or take a look at the national map on NYFC’s action page.
