Whether you’re already a devoted organic shopper, curious about organics or completely new to the concept, there are so many ways you can get involved and show your support to organic producers this September.
Australian Organic Awareness Month (or AOAM for short) is all about supporting the certified organic industry in Australia.

- Educating yourself and others about the importance of looking for certification marks on your organic purchases
- Finding where you can shop for organic products and learning more about just how many products are available
