Big Agriculture Business and Congress up to no good: criminalizing home and community gardens

This could almost be funny if it were not such a serious matter: House and Senate bills HR 875 and S 425 are a "dream come true" for the big agro-corporations: force people to buy industrially grown food.

History teaches us that "victory gardens", home vegetable gardens, and community gardens are both a first line of defense during national emergencies and help make our economy and society more resilient. If you have any Russian friends, ask them about how local farming was literally a life saver for some people when the Soviet Union collapsed. The value of local food production is self evident, but very much against big business interests.

I contacted my representative and senators and politely asked them to vote against HR 875 and S 425. Please consider doing the same - thank you.
