Seeds of Success: Demystifying the National Organic Standards Board
January 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST
The National Organic Coalition (NOC) is partnering with the Organic Farmers Association (OFA), and Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF), to host a series of virtual farmer-to-farmer networking sessions, Seeds of Success. These facilitated events will be interactive, informal spaces for farmers to share their challenges and successes, and will give farmers an opportunity to have open conversations on topics most relevant to them.
Join us at 1 pm ET on January 30, 2024 for the second session of the series, Demystifying the National Organic Standards Board: What it is, how it works, and how it impacts your farm!
This will be an interactive networking session for organic and transitioning farmers, where a panel of farmers and advocates will demystify the NOSB. Panelists will explain the role of the NOSB in shaping organic standards and allowed materials, the process the Board uses to make decisions, and explain how your comments can make a difference in Board decisions. Your input matters! The NOSB makes decisions that determine what you can and can’t do on your farm – we’ll explain how to provide input to the Board in a meaningful way, answer your questions, and share ideas about how to lift up farmer voices in the NOSB process.
