WATERLOO, N.Y. — The NY Certified Organic (NYCO) Discussion Meetings are back for just one meeting this winter and another this spring. The planning committee felt that we could have a safe winter meeting at J Martin Auctions due to the size of the facility which allows for personal spacing. We will also have a zoom link for those that would like to attend virtually.
