Sweetwater Organic Community Farm says
Many of us regularly purchase foods labeled "organic" because we are committed to the health of ourselves and the planet. After all, by consuming wisely we want to simultaneously feel good and age well while contributing to a more regenerative world through sustainable agriculture.

As conscious buyers, we aim for a healthy body, no chemicals, no GMO's, less carbon emissions and the compassionate treatment of animals. However, even those of us who are passionate and experienced "green shoppers" sometimes have a difficult time sorting out what is "organic" given the misleading nature of this label. Join us for an informative morning designed to take the blinders off and galvanize our purchasing power for the betterment of self and planet.

In this eye-opening talk and community conversation Rick Martinez will help us understand more about:

-the hidden substances and non-organic foods in products labeled "organic"
-what's required to use "organic" labels and how this impacts our choices
-what true "organic" means holistically (self and planet)
-more informed and conscious purchasing strategies

Bring a few labels of your favorite organic products to share and discuss!
