Governor Jay Nixon has signed a bill today creating a Joint Committee on Urban Farming. Farm policy, urban development and state agency leaders will advise the legislative task force which will study the impact of urban farm cooperatives and sustainable living communities on a statewide basis and come up with recommendations for the 2011 legislature.
At today’s bill signing in Kansas City, Nixon said he and First Lady Georganne Nixon have a vegetable and herb garden planted at the Governor’s Mansion in Jefferson City.
