Started by a group of organic farmers in New York's mid-Hudson Valley as a backlash against federal takeover of the organic program in 2002, Certified Naturally Grown has expanded over the past decade to include more than 700 farms in 47 states, executive director Alice Varon said.

"Certified Naturally Grown is tailored for direct-market farmers producing food without any synthetic chemicals specifically for their local communities," Varon said. "It's a particular niche of the agricultural world. It's not in direct competition with the national organic program."

Many small farmers previously certified organic by an independent organization have declined to participate in the federal program. They voice a variety of objections: extensive record-keeping requirements; fees that can amount to 6 percent of a small farm's gross sales; and philosophical objections to joining a monolithic government-run program that also certifies huge operations that ship produce across the country.

More fruit and veg daily to enhance health is important,but did you know that it is as important to eat vine ripened and chemical free fruits and veg (quality) as the quantity?

I have been playing with Google Keep for the last hour to review the extension. I wish I had an Android phone to test the options there. 

 

The only thing that I can say is that it's pretty awesome. It's a basic extension but it does its job. 

Colin Williams's curator insight, May 2, 2013 5:41 PM

Another way to save notes on the fly. Not convinced that this adds value but for chrome users it could come in handy. I'll stick to my combination of creating Tasks, Calander events and Evernote

Cindy Austin's insight:

Ever noticed how a cut turns red as it starts to heal?  Did you know that is going on inside your body daily and if not properly fed, leads to chronic illness.
