Why Grow (and eat, farm, live) Organically
Thanks to Mountain True & Hendersonville Green Drinks for hosting this event.
Industrial agriculture has resulted in a loss of biodiversity, environmental crises, reduced resilience, increased world hunger, and an over-reliance on a globalized food system. On top of that misinformation and manipulation by this corporate agenda leaves people sick and ill-informed. At Organic Growers School (OGS) we believe that the solution to these problems lies in the relocalization of organic food production. From small to medium sized farmers to the growing of orchards, gardens, and chickens in every yard to foraging the nutritious bounty of the region, we can live happier, healthier, and more connected lives by reclaiming organic food production.
