ZOPPA promotes organic agriculture as an alternative farming system that removes dependency on chemical and seed companies, improves people's health, balances the ecosystem while giving a livelihood even to the poor who cannot afford the chemicals. In an endeavour to promote organic agriculture ZOPPA does the following: 1. Lobby and advocate for a policy that supports organic agriculture in Zimbabwe; 2. Establish and monitor an agreed set of organic standards; 3. Facilitate market linkages for organic produce; 4. Provide relevant information on organic agriculture; 5. Coordinate organic agriculture activities for the growth of the industry; 6. Facilitate support structures, involvement for the growth of the organic sector (research, bio-inputs etc.). In doing this ZOPPA hopes to make a contribution towards a nation that is committed to using natural means of agriculture to ensure a healthy future for the land and its people.
