Rally to Keep the Soil in Organic

Event Dates and Times

10/15/2017 - Starts: 12:00 PM
Dartmouth College Green, Hanover, NH 03755
Save the date to join fellow organic farmers, eaters, and movement leaders on Sunday, October 15th on the green at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. This is just one of dozens of rallies happening around the country this fall in solidarity with organic producers growing in, and caring for the soil.

The tractor parade will start rolling at noon, followed by brief speeches, local food, live music, and lively celebrations!

Speakers at the rally include: NOFA-VT executive director Enid Wonnacott, and farmers Michael Phillips, Jake Guest, Roger Noonan, Laura Carpenter, Will Allen, Davey Miskell, Lisa McCrory, Dave Chapman, and Karl Hammer.

Please join us as we rally together to take back the National Organic Program (NOP) from corporate influence and reclaim the lost meaning of organic. Organic integrity has suffered in recent years as a flood of hydroponic vegetables and berries and products from animal confinement operations have forced their way into the Program. Join us in sending a strong message to the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) that animal confinement and hydroponic production have no place in organic. Real organic is based on healthy soil and working with natural systems, not imitating and replacing them. We are preparing for a historic NOSB vote in November on fertile soil as the foundation of organic farming.

Please join New Hampshire organic farmers in demanding that the NOP honor its commitment to real organic.
