Pasa is an advocate for the sustainable agriculture community of Pennsylvania and beyond. We educate and inform local, state, and federal policymakers through our research, case studies, on-farm demonstrations, and farmer feedback. We host farmer and community listening sessions to gain on-the-ground perspective on emerging food system topics. We connect farmers to new ideas and opportunities, and we communicate policy priorities to decision makers and stakeholders.
We collaborated with our community to develop a set of policy recommendations that support the widespread adoption of farming practices that improve the health of Pennsylvania’s vitally important agricultural soils.
We regularly submit public comments to policymakers that share insights and feedback we’ve received from farmers and food system professionals.
