What do zucchini races, breakfast challenges, and vineyard tours have in common? They’re all events for Canada’s Organic Week 2011!
Organic Week is organized by Canadian Organic Growers and the Canada Organic Trade Association to promote awareness of organic agriculture and to celebrate healthy, whole food grown in environmentally responsible ways. All across the country, people are planning all kinds of events, from movie nights to cooking demonstrations, so there’s something for everyone.
It’s a great time for organics in Canada, as people are looking for alternatives to large-scale commercial farming practices, and organic food, clothing, body care and cosmetics, and even household products are continuing to explode in popularity.
With Organic Week on the horizon, the Canadian organics industry hopes to further its goals by encouraging the Canadian government to prioritize the environment and support organic agriculture.
The demand for organics in Canada is bigger than ever and so are the celebrations, so don’t miss out on the fun: learn more about Organic Week and find an event near you. You can also drop by your local health food store to see what they have planned.
