I dont often (ever?!) repost articles from other blogs or newsletters but I thought the Quote of the Day from the Organic Consumers Association was worth a repost by 3 Healthy Chicks...
"Organic agriculture puts the needs of rural people and the sustainable use of natural resources at the centre of the farming system. Locally adapted technologies create employment opportunities and income. Low external inputs minimize risk of indebtedness and intoxication of the environment. It increases harvests through practices that favor the optimization of biological processes and local resources over expensive, toxic and climate damaging agro-chemicals...in response to a frequently asked question: Yes, the world can be fed by the worldwide adoption of Organic agriculture."

It's important to be reminded of the abundance of fresh produce we from the Garden State have the opportunity to enjoy. Organic, sustainable farming is the first step in security and independence. Support your local Jersey growers!
Keep it Fresh!
