Lakewood, CO—In conjunction with Organic Month, Natural Grocers is partnering withBeyond Pesticides to celebrate all things organic. The campaign aligns with Natural Grocers' belief that organic farmers, producers, and retailers can improve human health and the health of the environment.

Jay Feldman, Executive Director of Beyond Pesticides, spoke on the importance of supporting Organic Month. "Our partnership with Natural Grocers during Organic Month and year-round is powerful in advancing needed change because organic supporters play a critical role through organic purchasing decisions and support of community efforts to manage parks and playing fields organically. This contributes to safer food production and healthier communities, while protecting our air, land, water, and biodiversity and fighting the climate crisis. Though we're active in our advocacy efforts year-round, we place special emphasis on Organic Month, to recognize and praise our organic supporters."
