Do you know a farmer who is truly outstanding in his or her sustainable practices? Do you find yourself pointing to this person again and again when you need an example of a truly sustainable producer? If you do, then you can nominate your exemplary farmer for the Patrick Madden Award for Sustainable Agriculture. But do it soon–nominations close on May 10, 2004.
The Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) will present its second Madden award for farmers and ranchers who raise food or fiber in ways that are profitable, good for families and communities, and beneficial to the environment. Four winners will receive $1,000 each and a travel scholarship to “Toward a Sustainable Food System,” the SARE conference in Burlington, Vt., Oct. 19-21, 2004.
All producers farming in the United States and its protectorates are eligible, except for previous winners and finalists.
