FOOD – USA ~
Securing real organic farming, the foundation of which are healthy, fertile soils in which food plants are grown, and natural pastures on which farm animals are raised. The USDA organic label does not account for such standards. Instead plants are grown hydroponically (in water only) and animals are kept in confinement under questionable conditions and without living food. Both diminish nutritional value and disregard the natural needs of healthy plant and animal life, doing harm to the planet. The Real Organic Project is a grassroots farmers initiative and has created its own label which can be found on real organic foods in the USA.
