Certified Naturally Grown Program for Beekeepers topic of March meeting

PWRBA club member, Jonathan Duffy will present on the Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) program for beekeepers at our March 13th mtg. 7 pm at Manassas Church of the Brethren.

From thier website- “Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) is a non-profit organization offering certification tailored for small-scale, direct-market farmers and beekeepers using natural methods. CNG was born of a commitment to healthy food and healthy soils, and grew out of the belief that we could create something uniquely valuable to small farmers and the communities they feed. CNG was founded when the National Organic Program (NOP) took effect in 2002. Our certification model encourages collaboration, transparency, and community involvement. Our programs are based on the highest ideals of organic farming, and the requirements are reasonable. Many farmers find the peer-review inspection process a valuable learning experience.”
