The Sustainable Dozen

We may have lost the battle with Tom Vilsack as the Secretary of Agriculture nominee but we can still win the war. If you care about the food we eat, the state of the land used for agriculture, increasing biodiversity, ensuring cleaner water, humanely raised animal products, fair trade, battling obesity, then you'll want to sign this petition asking Mr. Vilsack to appoint the sustainable dozen - twelve undersecretaries to the USDA who can change the face of our food system. Join the ranks of Michael Pollan, Marion Nestle, and Wendell Berry and sign now.

I'm glad you posted this. I missed seeing it here earlier. I'm appreciating the perseverance of Food Democracy Now and hope they keep it up.
