Cornucopia staff and board members are grateful for the outpouring of kind and encouraging words from our supporters during this time of transition.

We and our members remain dedicated to the important work before us as watchdogs of the organic industry.

Our energized staff members have co-authored a list of updated core values to guide us as we move forward in our work and our search for an executive director.

I am proud to share it with you, below.
