MASSACHUSETTS

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

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.

As of May 15, 2018 it has been attached to the Bond Bill, and among others our Board member, Sharon McGregor, has given testimony that was heard with much interest by Committee members.

This bill will provide the basis and support in law for critical 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).

Sharon’s compelling testimony is here.
