Richmond micro-farmer goes to Washington D.C. rally, pushes next Farm Bill

Christine Johnson (third from left), co-owner of Richmond's Wild Trillium Farm, was one of seven Illinois small farmers to lobby Congress on March 7-8, 2023, with the Illinois Stewardship Alliance.

We had conversations about what the Farm Bill could mean for small farmers and how it could change our futures for viable, strong food systems in our communities.
