WE NEED YOUR HELP
TOFGA is run by a volunteer board who is working hard to build a sustainable future for the organization. Donations help cover TOFGA's operating costs and allow us to grow the annual conference and other events throughout the year including farm tours, workshops, and farmer trainings. Donations are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated!
Monday, May 1
Local Foods Awareness Day
at the Texas Capital
with Farm & Ranch Freedom Alliance
Judith McGeary and the FARFA team will give you the training, tools, and support you need to meet with legislators and their staff. Along the way, you will work alongside farmers and local food advocates, serving on the front lines to educate legislators about critical issues.
If you are a farmer, it is especially important to have your voice be heard! We know it can be difficult for farmers to leave their work, even for a day. But your story can make the difference for a legislator who might not otherwise understand how a bill impacts your very future.
We have funds available to help farmers with travel expenses and to defray the costs of temporary labor. Contact Judith@farmandranchfreedom.org for more information.
