To celebrate Organic Week 2012 (September 22 to 29), we’re blogging about organics in Canada. Today we’re talking about the ways you can get involved.
Stay tuned for more Organic Week coverage throughout the week!
About Organic Week
This is the third consecutive time that Organic Week has been celebrated across Canada. A collaborative effort between the Canadian Organic Growers and Canada Organic Trade Association, Organic Week is a chance to promote the growing field of organics, partner with groups across the country, and have a conversation between organic sector leaders and parliamentarians in Ottawa, to discuss current important issues to organics.
Fittingly, Organic Week kicked off during the 2012 Canadian Health Food Association Expo in Toronto. It’s also the 50 year anniversary of when Silent Spring was published, Rachel Carson’s inspiring environmental book.
There are tons of ways you can get involved and support Organic Week.
