National Organic Harvest Month
Since 1992 the Organic Trade Association has deemed September as Organic Harvest Month. The objective is to promote an appreciation of organic food and to educate communities about organic agriculture. You can participate in the month long celebration by shopping your local farmers market, donating to your local food shelter and participating in organic cooking classes. Oh, and don’t forget that organic extends beyond produce – think chocolate and wine too! For more information on how you can participate, visit the Organic Trade Association
