Organic Center events at EcoFarm

EcoFarmBoth OTA and The Organic Center participated in the Ecological Farming Association’s EcoFarm Conference this past week. The Center held a discussion group on manure safety, which was part of a national effort to address issues surrounding animal-based soil amendments.  Participants were asked about specific topics such as microbiological contents, compost and manure management, and grazing practices in crop and fruit-producing fields or orchards for human consumption. In addition, the discussion also explored beliefs and attitudes regarding food safety and the use of animal-based soil amendments, and potential economic or other barriers to using compost or treated animal-based soil amendments.
