The National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) will vote November 2nd on a prospective rule change that would remove hydroponic, aquaponic, and other soilless or container-based growing systems from the USDA organic label.
Growers on both sides of the debate agree on so much: the need for sustainability; protecting existing ecosystems and preserving soil; safety in food production; and fresh, local flavor.
Let the NOSB hear your voice! Submit a comment before October 11th to ensure that the NOSB knows that indoor growers like us are active, engaged, and, allies to their cause.
