We demand that the USDA follow the law as it is written in the Organic Food Production Act. We demand that the USDA stop certifying as organic all hydroponically-grown fruits and vegetables . This is being done to the advantage of huge corporations and at the expense of small family farmers and caring eaters. Today, cheaply-produced, non-organic food grown in industrial factories is flooding the market under the USDA organic label. As America loses the soil-based organic growers, they are losing the real alternative to the conventional-industrial production. Organic farming is based on building greater life in complex soil systems. It is not based on replacing all natural nutrition with fertilizers coming out of a bag. The USDA is damaging trust in the seal by allowing such produce to be called organic.
