A quarter century ago, organic farmers gave themselves over to the federal government for safe keeping. Now some want the head Fed to be fired for selling them out to industrial interests. And so we ask…
Is “organic” still organic? (Click to listen and comment.)
This Saturday at 9am Pacific, Michael Olson’s Food Chain Radio will host Mark Kastel of the Cornucopia Institute for a conversation about the tug-of-war over organic food and agriculture.
Topics include how establishing an official definition for “organic” made possible the incredible growth of the organic food industry; how government was tasked to manage the word so as to hold its value; and why some now want the head of the National Organic Program fired.
