OTA at Work For You Calendar


In 1992, the Organic Trade Association implemented “Organic Harvest Month™”, a widespread promotion of organic food and agriculture through regional and local events.  

The objective of Organic Harvest Month™ is to highlight organic agriculture and the growing organic products industry. September is also an ideal time for consumers and retailers to celebrate the bounty of the organic harvest.

Events and celebrations of all shapes and sizes take place across North America, in parks, schools, stores, farmers' markets and at restaurants. Events in the past have included Gastronomic Walking Tours, Organic Country Fairs, organic-themed barn dances, special displays and tastings at supermarkets and special pull-out sections in local newspapers.
