When you are at the store, and it doesn’t matter garden or grocery, ask yourself.
“This package says organic, but what definition does the manufacturer subscribe to?”
A chemical definition:
“relating to, or containing carbon compounds” (Miriam Webster)
A biological definition:
“of, relating to, or derived from living organisms” (Miriam Webster)
A cultural definition:
“an ecological management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil geological activity… a holistic approach which emphasizes the importance of relationships between living organisms and their environment”. (SOUL Organic Land Care Standard).
