The 7th Annual Organic Okanagan Festival will be held on September 23, 2012.  Organized by the Okanagan Greens Society, the Organic Okanagan Festival (or OOF) is dedicated to promoting sustainable green farming, products and trade in the Central Okanagan of British Columbia.

The overall message of this year’s festival is “Love the Apple – NO GMO”. In response to Okanagan Specialty Fruits’ recent request to Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Health Canada to approve their “non-browning” Genetically Modified (GM) apple variety, the festival will celebrate organic apples with:
