Every year scientific research on the benefits of organic expands and so does the spread of misinformation about the effects of organic on our health and environment. This workshop will dispel the myths, highlighting what some of the most recent scientific studies say and don’t say about how organic agriculture impacts our communities and ecosystems. For example, research shows that on average, organic farms have 44% higher levels of humic acid (the component of soil that sequesters carbon over the long term) than soils not managed organically. Come hear the latest and greatest about how organic fits into positive strategies to improve soil health, biodiversity and clean water, and how it mitigates climate change while reducing dietary and occupational exposure to pesticides.
