Florida Farm Bureau Day
On March 8, 2023 Florida Farm Bureau members will advocate at the State Capitol on Florida Farm Bureau priority issues during the 2023 Legislative Session. Members will share with state legislators how they are #GrowingForward in agriculture within their communities and why their efforts are important to the state.
Florida Farm Bureau Day is the ideal time to communicate with state policymakers about the livelihood of your farm and the important role agriculture plays in our society.
We hope you will join us in sharing your story with lawmakers on this day to help remind them why the health of our food, water and land is such a critical legislative priority. This is a great opportunity to encourage them to help agriculture continue #GrowingForward in Florida.
To amplify the message, Florida Farm Bureau is encouraging all of its members to use the following hashtags on their social media channels #FFBDay23, #VoiceofAgriculture and #GrowingForward.
