    Default Tell Congress: Don't Weaken Organic Standards!

    Organic Consumers Association
    12/12/18

    It's time to sign another organic farming petition:

    Every five years, Congress is tasked with reauthorizing the Farm Bill, a key piece of legislation that determines how $90 billion/year will be spent.
    This is one of those years.
    Unfortunately, the 2018 Farm Bill Conference Report includes changes to the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) that would make it much easier for industry to use synthetic chemicals in organic food and farming.

    URGENT ACTION NEEDED! Tell Congress: Keep Organics Strong!

    P.S. Here's an example: "organic" and "hydroponic" don't belong in the same sentence. Organic growing is as much about the soil as it is about chemicals and other additives.

    Unfortunately, this is one that I am unable to do because they have rejected me as I do not live in one of their recognized "states". Too bad.
