Voice Your Support at EcoFarm to Pass the Organic Farming Act!

Join CCOF at EcoFarm as we kick off our campaign to pass the Organic Farming Act—an act to end outdated State Organic Program fees and paperwork!

California Central Coast Assemblymember Mark Stone will introduce the Organic Farming Act to update California’s state organic law. The Organic Farming Act will end unfair, duplicative, and outdated fees and paperwork while also creating a new framework for the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) to support organic agriculture.

To pass the Organic Farming Act, we need your help at two critical EcoFarm events.

  1. Attend the California Organic Products Advisory Council (COPAC) meeting at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 21 in the Heather Room at Asilomar in Pacific Grove, California. Tell COPAC why you support the Organic Farming Act. COPAC meetings are open to the public—come share your story of why you want to end outdated fees and paperwork.
  2. Attend the EcoFarm workshop titled “Campaign to End State Organic Program Fees” at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, January 22 at Asilomar in Pacific Grove, California. The workshop will discuss the evolution of the organic movement and look forward to how the Organic Farming Act will support and grow organic agriculture.
