Motivating Issue

Water and food. They’re interrelated, of course. A lot of our problems start with the use of petroleum-based chemicals on our food, and those get washed into the water supply. If we get our food system right, that will solve a lot of issues.

Why I Belong To MEIC

MEIC offers guidance to grassroots organizations. They understand the politics of the issues and do a good job of explaining it in their publications, which offer a course of action.

What I Want To Pass On

We need to protect our agricultural lands. Once land is developed for houses, you never get it back.
