Soils Legislation

Biodiversity for a Livable Climate, the Northeast Organic Farming Association, legislative expert Steven Keleti and Soil4Climate collaborate to file the Massachusetts Healthy Soils bill!

Massachusetts Residents: Contact your state rep!  Co-Sponsors needed by May 18th . . .

Biodiversity for a Livable Climate, Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA), Steven Keleti and Soil4Climate have ushered the Massachusetts Healthy Soils bill to filing in the House of Representatives, bill attached. It has a Docket number, HD3966 – it hasn’t been assigned a bill number yet, that will happen soon. This bill will provide the basis and support in law for excellent work in regenerative agriculture in Massachusetts; it also establishes a funding structure to do so (it does not require the legislature to fund it at this point, but allows other fundraising options).

There’s a narrow window for getting co-sponsors – until Thursday, May 18th. So please contact your state rep and senator and ask them to co-sponsor. They do this simply by clicking a link in the legislature’s LAWS system; they may also contact Stephanie ( in lead sponsor Representative Paul Schmid’s office for further information.

Please pass this along – time to rock ‘n’ roll towards healthier food and healthier climate – and thanks!
