What’s Organic Mean To The USDA?

Apparently, not as much as we’d hope. But, I dare say, we knew that already. ;)

The United States Department of Agriculture is now proposing a set of “feel good,” though not necessarily effective, solutions to the e-coli outbreaks in spinach and other leafy greens.

It’s unclear to me exactly the full extent of what’s included in these new one-size-fits-all regulations. However, the gist is that they’re aimed at nearly eliminating all non-crop plants and microbial soil life in the fields.

These strategies are, of course, critical to organic and small farms in bringing healthy, nutrient rich foods to our tables.

I encourage you to learn more about it via the Organic Consumers Association and other resources. The comment period for public input is open throughout the weekend until Monday, December 3rd.

Take Action Here

(Speaking of breaking news, this Clinton campaign hostage situation here in Rochester, NH is crazy! It’s surreal watching live TV of swat teams in action on streets and in front of buildings I pass almost every day.)

    Wow–I didn’t realize you were right there in Rochester, NH! It would be weird to see that on TV…

    Thanks for the link to give input on the standards…
