Let's take flight with organic agriculture

On Friday, thousands of volunteers will flock to fields and shorelines with binoculars for the start of the 113th Annual National Audubon Christmas Bird Count. Last week, I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peak of what birders will see. I had the pleasure of introducing, Mike Sutton, the new Executive Director of California Audubon to the Lundberg Family Farms family members in the Sacramento Delta.

Growing Organic Beans, Counting Organic Beans

This is part 2 of the 3-part series "From the Ground Up: What Does It Mean to be Certified Organic?"

Many people don’t know that part of the organic certification process is keeping good records of farming activities. I’ve spoken with farmers who resist this, saying things like, I’m a farmer, not a bookkeeper. Some even see it as a stumbling block to pursuing certification. 

Organic Farming for Health & Prosperity... INDEED!

"We are always grateful for information on America's agricultural efforts, especially when it is as complete and thoughtfully compiled as Organic Farming for Health & Prosperity.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) administers the National Organic Program (NOP), and information such as you have provided will help us to refine and strengthen NOP."   - USDA Secretary Thomas J. Vilsack
