Event Description

Friday 5 – Sunday 14 October 2012

National Organic Week Australia (NOW) is 10 days of targeted media and locally-staged activities designed to increase awareness of the benefits of organic products and farming production systems and accelerate the uptake of these in the wider Australian community and environment.

As consumers, you want food you can recognise and trust.

Buying organic products supports food safety, health, good nutrition and the environment.

Products that carry the logo of an accredited organic certification body guarantees they are genuine organic.

The Centre for Organic & Resource Enterprises (CORE) is the organiser of NOW Australia. CORE is a dedicated marketing and research network for participants in the resource recovery, organic and clean-tech sectors.

CORE also organises International Composting Awareness Week Australia (ICAW) which will take place between Monday 7 and Saturday 12 May 2012.

Within these two programs CORE promotes and manages the key aspects that lead to community change towards organic products and practices.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
