I came across this infographic today and thought you all might find it interesting too.
Here are the facts I found most interesting and encouraging:
- The organic industry is creating jobs at 4 times the national average.
- 40 percent of the organic market is fruits and vegetables.
- 4.6 million acres of farmland in the U.S. are organic.
Facts like this encourage me to get involved with natural food systems as a career, not just a hobby. What’s most interesting to you? Anything to add to this?
