    What I want to see from the farm bill:• Uses public resources for the public good. • Values land stewardship and local, healthy food. • Invests in people to build local communities vital for economic resilience. • Rewards crop diversity and soil health as essential for our future. • Upholds the interdependence of urban and rural communities. Specific goals:1) Increase funding for CSP and make sure it rewards existing conservation and delivers real environmental benefits.2) Reform crop insurance subsides and create strong conservation compliance.3) Increase funding for beginning farmer programs, and improve access to loans and credit.4) End public subsidies to factory farms through EQIP and guaranteed loans.5) Grow local markets, food systems and economics to revitalize rural life.
