Organic farming is gaining ground in the U.S. and abroad for a variety of reasons.
It sequesters carbon and relies on non-petroleum based fertilizers, which helps to reduce global warming.
It helps to keep water supplies clean and promotes biodiversity by relying on composting, crop rotation, and other practices, rather than toxic and persistent pesticides, to build up soil.
It helps farmers, farmers' families - and your family - to minimize exposure to harmful synthetic chemicals.
It also shows great promise as a sustainable way to feed the world's growing population.
