Our decisions about food are governed by factors including taste, price, and concerns about ethics and safety. The way food has been grown or raised and processed is a central concern for many consumers. In this event, a panel of Greenmarket farmers address the technical and practical meanings of labels like “organic,” “natural,” and “hormone free” and explain how small family farms make decisions about growing practices and obtaining popular certifications such as “Certified Naturally Grown” and “Organic.” Speakers to be announced. Co-sponsored by the New School Food Studies program and GrowNYC.
