Propelling organic produce from fringe to mainstream.
In This Podcast: The story of how organic produce and food became mainstream in our grocery stores is shared by Tonya Antle who was actively driving this change before most of us even knew we needed it. She found her passion in the early stages of the organic movement and helped propel it across the nation. Now there is a new focus with the Organic Grower Summit happening in December, and she shares some very useful tips as a highlight of what will be available then.
