Trust Organic has several aims.
It will be used as an awareness campaign to help consumers identify
genuine organic products
Promote the new Australian Standard for Organic and Biodynamic Products
that will be released in October
It will also be used to launch the OFA's Australian Government climate
change project that will see workshops in every state and territory
from 2009 to 2011. This project will help organic farmers mitigate and
adapt to climate change
The fortnight will generate a lot of media on certified organic products
and the benefits of organic farming systems in mitigating climate change.
We encourage everybody to hold organic events throughout October.
