Organic Shizukuishi is located in Shizukuishi town in Iwate Prefecture, Japan.
We are an organization to connect organic farmers, consumers and relevant stakeholders intending to create future organic society. We are heading for the Organic 3.0 direction of IFOAM - Organics International. So we are trying to make our best efforts to realize sustainable organic farming systems as well as introducing eco-friendly technologies for more organic produce. And besides we will develop strong ties among people through wide variety of PGS activities. This contributes deeper and healthier understanding of IFOAM PGS and better quality of organic produce. We believe that PGS activities are not simply the certification for small family farmers, but they have more aspects as follows which are different from third party certification;
- Trust promotions between PGS stakeholders and community people,
- Organic farming skill improvement to achieve sustainable PGS management,
- Contribution to expand organic farmlands,
- Revitalization of the community.
These items are our common goals to sustain and improve our PGS activities.
