Adopted on
Oct 14, 2009

Whereas the current Democratic Party platform contains sections on Sustainable Communities and Energy & Environment and;

Whereas there is no clause in either of these sections directly dealing with the truly small scale production of agricultural producers and;

Whereas these small (1-10 acre) family farms are being forced out of production for a variety of reasons, be it

Resolved that a plank be included in the platform that supports the efforts of the small-scale farmer in our society.
