Getting Tilth-y is a visual conversation series by Oregon Tilth, sharing the words of others alongside photos to bring you into someone else’s world, even if just for a moment.

This episode features Oregon Tilth’s own John Caputo, a senior certification officer and organic inspector, as he travels to Naturepedic for its annual inspection. In addition, we hear from Naturepedic’s founder and technical director about the importance of the inspection to organic integrity and the industry as a whole. They share insights into the details behind an inspection, the rigor of the process and the hard work of organic producers to maintain and uphold organic certification.
