Help CCOF Create a Policy Roadmap for Organic

Earlier this year, CCOF Foundation launched the Roadmap to an Organic California project to highlight how organic farming addresses many of California’s toughest challenges. From climate change and water degradation to public health threats and struggling local economies, organic agriculture is a proven solution.   
 
The Benefits Report presented over 300 peer-reviewed scientific studies showing how organic agriculture positively impacts the economy, society, and the environment.

Help CCOF Receive Community Donations from New Leaf’s Envirotoken Boards

Each year CCOF competes for a spot on the New Leaf Community Markets Envirotoken boards, and we need your vote! Every time a customer uses their own reusable shopping bag at New Leaf store locations, they are awarded a 10¢ envirotoken to donate to the local nonprofit of their choice on the board. To qualify for the boards, these nonprofits are required to maintain a goal of helping the environment and conserve resources. CCOF proudly adheres to this requirement.

Help Organic Farms Affected by Fire—Donate to the CCOF Foundation

News that many of our organic operations have been impacted by the wildfires raging throughout California has rippled through the CCOF offices this week. Inspectors, chapter members, and certified members have called to see how CCOF can lend a hand. CCOF’s Bricmont Fund is poised to help organic operations in their time of need, but we have limited funds to give away as hardship assistance grants this year. We need your help to raise additional funds to support wildfire victims in California.
