NOFA GRASSROOTS POLICY INPUT WANTED!

In this interactive workshop, participants and a panel of Interstate NOFA Policy Committee members will dig into today’s policy landscape. Should hydroponics, nanotechnology, and open net aquaculture pens be allowed in organic certification? Should Congress preempt state GMO labeling laws and push fast-track trade agreements? Should organic check-off be allowed? What issues do you want to bring to the table?
Steve Gilman, Longtime Policy Coordinator for the NOFA Interstate Council.
Elizabeth Henderson, Co-chair of the Interstate NOFA Policy Committee from NY.
Alex Simpson, Co-chair of the Interstate NOFA Policy Committee from NH.
