The Policy Committee aims to become a leading voice for local farmers by introducing and improving policies on a local, state and national level in order to address the immediate needs of beginning farmers and to ensure the future success of our farming community. The committee also aims to make policy more transparent and navigable to members.
The Policy Committee's role is to unify the voices in Boulder under a platform by creating a protocol, building a campaign, and facilitating opportunities for engagement.
