The National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) will hold its
spring board meeting in April. The board reviews all synthetic and non-organic
materials proposed by Big Farma before they can be used in organic farming or
For thirty days before each meeting, the public is supposed
to be invited to scrutinize and comment on the topics that will come up at the
NOSB meetings—a wide range of issues that significantly affect organic
standards—but they failed to send out any public announcement about the
thirty-day comment period, not even in their own e-newsletter.
Public comment is vital to keep the NOSB accountable in face
of an increasingly cozy relationship between NOSB and Big Farma, and a serious
dilution of organic standards. Please send them your comments about this
meeting’s agenda, and let your voice be heard!
Please personalize and add your own comments if you have time!
Dear [Decision Maker],
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
