Dreams of Organic Farming without the hassle |Failed Organic Certification System | How About | Certified Naturally Grown | CNG – Home Page

Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) is a non-profit organization offering certification tailored for small-scale, direct-market farmers and beekeepers using natural methods.

CNG was born of a commitment to healthy food and healthy soils, and grew out of the belief that we could create something uniquely valuable to family farms and the communities they feed. CNG was founded when the National Organic Program (NOP) took effect in 2002.

Our certification model encourages collaboration, transparency, and community involvement. Our programs are based on the highest ideals of organic farming, and the requirements are reasonable. Many farmers find the peer-review inspection process a valuable learning experience.

CNG producers don’t use any synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or GMO seeds, just like organic farmers. Certified Naturally Grown is an independent program not affiliated with the NOP.

CNG thrives because of enormous volunteer efforts and the commitment of the people who participate. Please join the farmers and beekeepers at the heart of the movement! Apply for certification, or become a Friend of CNG.. Continue reading

Anti Expert | Gideon Forman | Pesticide ban not so hard – Letter to the Editor – The Journal Pioneer

The science shows that people exposed to these chemicals are at greater risk for cancers, neurological illness (such as Parkinson’s), and birth defects.

So pesticide bans have been protecting citizens from a variety of dangerous medical conditions. These bans have also been successful in protecting family pets and drinking water.

As well, cities with pesticide bylaws have seen their lawn-care sector grow. In the five years following enactment of a pesticide bylaw in Halifax, for example, the number of landscaping and lawn care businesses in that city increased by 53 per cent.

Physicians for the Environment urges Summerside to ban lawn and garden pesticides at the earliest possible date. This common-sense policy will enhance public health and – if Summerside is like other cities that have eliminated these poisons — prove very popular with local residents.
