for me the organic rules have attempted to codify sustainable, which can
be subject to various interpretations.
i am not saying that organic or sustainable aren't desirable. but it
can be extremely confusing. in the effort to provide a more wholesome
and preferably locally grown / produced / processed product through
organic labeling, we have tended to push those same organic growers away
during the carolina farm stewardship farm tour a few weeks ago, i talked
with farmers who are no longer interested in maintaining their organic
certification. furthermore, some question the strong anti-genetic
engineering aspects of the current debate. yet, leaving any loopholes
in the rule need to be avoided. is this loophole proof perspective
wise? it seems like we will 'rule' and 'regulate' ourselves to the
just my thoughts
