Nominations sought for sustainable agriculture award

Do you know of a farmer or rancher who truly is outstanding in the field, on the range or at the farmers market? Do you find yourself pointing to this person again and again when you need an example of a truly “sustainable” producer?

The Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program announces its second award for farmers and ranchers who raise food or fiber in ways that are profitable, good for families and communities, and beneficial to the environment.

Four winners of the Patrick Madden Award for Sustainable Agriculture will receive $1,000 each and a travel scholarship to “Toward a Sustainable Food System,” the SARE conference in Burlington, Vt., Oct. 19-21, 2004. All producers farming in the United States and its protectorates are eligible, except for previous winners and finalists.

To nominate someone, go to www.sare.org/madden The nomination deadline is May 10, 2004. No self nominations, please.

SARE is administered by the Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Since 1988, SARE has advanced farming systems that are profitable, environmentally sound and good for communities. See www.sare.org
