the peak body for organic agriculture
in Australia, has declared, "October is
organic month". The feature event for the

many benefits of organic and biodynamic
farming systems to food, health, climate
change and the environment. You can see
these on the website www.trustorganic.
Using organic products and supporting
sustainable farming systems really does
matter. While the organic path may not
yet be perfect, it's getting better, and I
believe it is our best path forward. ●
