Hi this is Andrew Green from the NW Farm Bill Action Group. I would love to connect with whoever is writing the Farm Bill Blog. I have some great resources to share (in addition to what is on the CAGJ web page) and I would love to find out what resources you are using as well! Don't know if I already know the writer of this but either way shoot me an email -

Awesome your doing this!
