This coming Sunday, October 15th, join us at Rally in the Valley!
This rally is one of 16 other rallies scheduled to publicly oppose the weakening of USDA Organic labeling standards and to demand that the National Organic Program preserve soil as the foundation of all organic farming. Learn about how the USDA regulates what it means to be “organic,” and how that affects you and the food you eat. Get involved in the discussion about hydroponic farming and hydroponic food labeling! This is an opportunity to stay informed about food sourcing and how hydroponic gardening affects us all.
Meet at Hanover High School at 2 pm to follow the Tractor Parade down Main Street to the Dartmouth Green! At the Green, there will be short lectures from local farmers and rally organizers, food from the NOVA-VT pizza oven and Skinny Pancake, live music, and a family-friendly celebration.
Bring: puppets, costumes, banners, and signs!
Possible sign messages:
Don’t water down organic!
Organic means soil-grown!
Don’t hide behind organic!
Healthy Soil, Healthy People, Healthy Communities
