We cover a lot of topics in the pages of The Canadian Organic Grower, all of which relate to the organic community in some way, but it is not often that we step back to take a hard look at ourselves and what ‘organic’ really means.
In this issue of TCOG, we look back at how we got to where we are today—the principles guiding organic agriculture and the development of our current Canadian Organic Standards and Organic Products Regulation.
We also examine where we are right now—how the provinces are bringing the national standards into force within their own jurisdictions and how farmers put standards into practice in their own operations. We also look ahead to where we might want to improve the organic standards—something we all ought to consider in the lead-up to the standards review beginning later this year.
