Organic Food in Schools

Last month, I reported that the Organic Trade Association is sponsoring a contest for schools to start an organic gardening project.

Our local high school Pacific High School, in Port Orford, Oregon,  is a  contender. But, it needs your help.  The school with the most votes will win. The minimum number of entries is 1,000. Our school population is under 100!

We desperately need Your help.

This is how you can help Pacific.  Go to the OTA website and vote. The entry is simple. Just vote!

http://www.organicitsworthit.org/

Thank you for your time and good will.
We are on the way!

Thank you!



Thank you for joining the "Organic. It's Worth It In Schools." initiative.

Vote for Pacific, contact your schools, and involve them as well.



The following headlines come from the web site. Check them out:

What is the best way to encourage children to make healthy food choices?


Decrease the price of healthy food


Increase the price of junk food


Improve education about health and nutrition


Limit advertisers' ability to target ads for junk food to children
