2023 NH Agricultural Policy Forum

2023 NH Agricultural Policy Forum recording

In preparation for the 2024 legislative session, we heard from New Hampshire’s most well-informed food policy minds at the 2023 NH Agricultural Policy Forum on December 13. Each speaker provided insights on the state level legislation being considered this session, as well as insight into what individuals, communities, organizations, and businesses can do to get involved in the legislative process and support positive change in our food system. The forum began with a success story from the 2023 legislative session— a policy change that was passed through a bipartisan effort in support of funding agricultural land preservation in New Hampshire.
