PGS program invitation
As you might be aware, PGS (Participatory Guarantee Scheme) is a nationally approved community program for certification. In today's' fast growing organic movement, we need a common platform to organize the Organic community and build trust among the society. The apprehensions of the common man on the quality and pricing of organic items can be easily addressed by coming together as a PGS group.
PGS allows us to form communities and certify ourselves with limited documentation - without interference from third party. On 24th July 2014, a PGS training program is organised at Nesara from 10.30 AM to 4.30 PM to explain the process and documentation procedures involved. It'll be an opportunity to share ideas, knowledge and seeds with fellow organic farmers of Mysore. Consumers can also be part of this initiative and take up certain responsibilities of 'ensuring quality'.
Please join in!
The PGS is an internationally applicable organic quality assurance system implemented and controlled by the committed organic farmer-producers through active participation, along with the consumers, in the process based on verifiable trust. It is not an “inspection raj” certification system but, rather, one that is based on personal integrity and peer pressure
