National Organic Update

There is always something going on with organic regulations that we on the left coast need to know about. This annual workshop will provide information about what is going on with the National Organic Program (NOP) of the USDA and the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB). Topics may include aquaculture, biodegradeable mulch, retail certification, equivalency agreements, materials classifications, and more! These regulations affect all organic farmers.

Presenters:

Jay Feldman, Beyond Pesticides & NOSB, Washington, D.C.;
John Foster, Earthbound Farm & NOSB, San Juan Bautista, CA;
Miles McEvoy, National Organic Program USDA, Washington, D.C.
