Organic agriculture benefits the planet, farmers and communities – webinar

Many consumers understand that growing foods without synthetic pesticides is better for the health of our planet, though the communities and people that benefit are often left out of the story. Ciranda works to change this by elevating the stories of those who grow our food, fostering transparency within the industry and boosting consumer awareness.

Consumers are increasingly interested in sustainable items and want to purchase products that align with this idea. Many brands and farmers want to move in this direction but may not know where to start. Ciranda guides farmers through the transition to organic farming, helping them understand the long-term benefits to their land and communities. 

The USDA Organic certification offers opportunities for meaningful change in the agricultural system as the only food certification with federal oversight. While the benefits of organic farming are often well recognized, the stories of those stewarding the land are often forgotten, leading to a disconnected supply chain. By facilitating collaboration and offering localized support to farmers transitioning to organic farming, Ciranda elevates their stories and boosts the integrity of the organic certification. 

Register for this webinar to learn how organic agriculture can lift communities, build consumer trust and strengthen our collective ecosystem.
