From over 30 years of experience in community organizing, Community Farm Alliance members know that making real and democratic change is hard work, and takes time and patience. An economic and social transition begins with constructive grassroots dialogue, is built on successful models, and secured with good public policy.
CFA uses several strategies to build democracy, create good public policy, and aid community development. Through community organizing, leadership development, and strategic alliances with other organizations, CFA works to bring a critical public voice to policy makers. Working locally, CFA also develops community-based projects that directly build communities and can be used as models for good public programs and policy.
