Organic produce growers organizing lobby alliance

Tuesday, September 11, 2001 at 1:00am

Local growers of organic produce are banding together to create a lobby much in the way California growers of organic produce did more than a decade ago. The group, called Tennessee Organic Growers Alliance (TOGA), will have its first organizational meeting Sept. 29 at YCAP in East Nashville, said Peggy Lynn, organizer of TOGA.

Lynn, daughter of singer Loretta Lynn, owns a 38-acre organic farm in Goodlettsville called Madison Creek Farms. She said when she began the business two years ago there was no information on organics in Tennessee.
