Organic food is healthy for farmers, animals, the planet – and you!
If you want to reduce your exposure to artificial ingredients, synthetic pesticides and GMOs, Organic food is the way to go. Organic farming is also great for farmers, animals, and the planet – it promotes climate-friendly food production, helps farmers stay healthy due to not being exposed to dangerous pesticides and fertizliers, promotes wildlife diversity, protects from soil erosion, helps prevent water contamination and uses less energy than conventional farming methods. Join Nandita to learn how to optimize your food dollars for your health – and the health of animals and the planet!

Thank you to our sponsors: Nature’s Farm, Manitoba Organic Alliance.
