The Organic Movement in Michigan

Maynard Kaufman, who was present at the creation of both Organic Growers of Michigan (1973) and MOFFA (1992), has edited a book about the history of the organic movement in Michigan, with contributions from fifteen of those who were involved in the movement over the past 45 years.  The 19 chapters in the book encompass a wide variety of information: historical summaries of the major organic organizations, reports on various organic activities, and essays about the past, present and future of organic farming. They provide a record of both successes and failures, triumphs and tragedies, such as the fatal encounter of OGM with the Federal program for organic certification.  More information about the book, including capsule reviews, is available at
