Sound & Sensible

In 2014, the National Organic Program’s (NOP) Sound and Sensible initiative funded 14 year-long projects across the United States aimed at making organic certification more accessible, attainable, and affordable while maintaining high standards, ensuring compliance, and protecting organic integrity. Project leads worked directly with organic farmers and businesses to identify and remove barriers to certification, streamline the certification and recordkeeping process, and conduct education and outreach.
