President-Elect Obama: Please Support Organic Food & Farming

The purity and availability of local, organic food is something that we know is very important to our member-owners.

The election of Barack Obama brings a possibly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to significantly shift the focus of our national agricultural policy away from the Monsantos and "Big Agriculture" companies of the world to sustainable, family farms and organic agriculture. We need to make our voices heard to encourage Obama to keep that in mind in making his choice for Secretary of Agriculture and how he drives agricultural policy.

Please consider signing the petition from the OCA (Organic Consumer Association) to President-Elect Obama.

Just go to and fill in the form.

The OCA website is a great resource for all kinds of information, organic news, activism, sustainability, and much more. Right now there's a really great interview of Michael Pollan on thier site. Check it out!
