Industrial-scale agriculture is America's number one source of water pollution. Over half of our waterways are contaminated with nitrate from fertilizer, and toxic agricultural run-off has created the largest deadzone in history in The Gulf of Mexico.
Join us on Nov. 15, for a panel discussion bringing forward different perspectives on this issue. A sustainable food system is possible, and is supported by farmers and ranchers, scientists, healthcare professionals, and social justice groups. Hear from different and diverse leaders in our community about the problem, the solutions, and how you can help!
