What is Organic Month?

Canada’s National Organic Month is the largest annual celebration of organic food, farming and products across the country. Hundreds of individual events showcase the benefits of organic agriculture and its positive impact on the environment. Organic represents a vibrant alternative food system and an alternative option for clothing, personal care and cleaning products.

In past years, events included anything from pickling workshops to recipes contests, farm tours, or organic food and drink tastings in retail locations across the country.
