5 PM: Digging In The Dirt: Today’s show is all about “The fight for Organic Integrity, and what a savvy organic consumer needs to know”. At the end of 2017 the National Organic Standards board, of the USDA voted to allow some crops grown Hydroponically, and Aquaponically to have organic labels. Today Dave Chapman, an organic farmer for 37 years from Long Wind Farms, will talk about the significance of certifying hydroponically-grown produce as organic. Can organic be soilless? When you pay a premium for Organic labeled food, is that what your getting? This IS a big deal because Organic food sales were a 47-billion (with a “B”), dollar industry in 2016. Also, immediately following David’s interview, Jeff Cordulack, the Executive Director of CT NOFA, drops by to talk about Organiconn, CT NOFA’s 36th Winter conference, where David Chapman happens to be the Keynote Speaker.
