USDA announces new FSA County Committees to promote urban, indoor, and other emerging agri practices

In order to better support urban agriculture, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced new Farm Service Agency (FSA) county committees focused exclusively on urban agriculture.

“County committees represent farmers and set priorities at the local level. Urban and suburban farmers are uniquely qualified to identify the needs of growers and their communities, especially when it comes to making fresh, healthy food accessible,” Under Secretary for Farm Production and Conservation Bill Northey said.

Nominations

Urban farmers who participate in an FSA program in the county selected may either be nominated or nominate themselves or others as a candidate.

On the other hand, organizations may also nominate candidates.
