Definition of Beyond Organic

Definition of Beyond Organic

There is a fundamental difference between the organic movement and the more recent organic industry. We need to dig deeper and look beyond narrow legal definitions to find a philosophy that truly addresses a system of agriculture that is incredibly complex and multidimensional.

Organic methods + low carbon footprint = beyond organic. For more on this see my two books, The Laws of Physics Are On My Side (2013) and Hints for Managing Collapse (2014). The first book is about one-third analysis of the problem and two-thirds solutions. The second book is all solutions. Available on Amazon.
