Organic foods and organic practices are receiving quite a
lot of attention lately. I know I can't walk down the grocery store without
seeing organic labels on food as well as advertising for "going
organic" everywhere. Maybe you have no idea what being organic means and
are interested in finding out, or maybe you already are an organic eater and
want to spread awareness to others. Either way, those of you interested in
eating organic or learning more about what it means to eat organically, this
organization at UNH deserves your attention.

For those of you who do not know
what the Organic Garden
Club
is, it is  part of the Food and
Society Initiative of the UNH Sustainability Academy. The OGC is not necessary
a "UNH program" in the sense that UNH staff does not run it; it is a
student run organization. Their goal is to find ways to spread sustainability
to the UNH campus, students, staff and more. Not only are they involved with
growing organic foods, but they are involved with the process of why things are
organic and how they come to be organic. OGC has won multiple recognitions and
awards for their work. In 2007, they won Student Organization of the year! If
this post has sparked your interest, this is a great group to get involved
with!
