Investing in Our Community
The NTA is a small organization; however, we love helping our community of graduates and other like-minded organizations succeed and flourish. Now more than ever, we want to support other groups who are furthering the cause or making an impact in their own communities.
Kick Cancer was co-founded by one of our graduates, Season Johnson, NTP, Kari Uetz, M.A.Ed., and Leslie Johnson. Their mission is to “empower through education — teaching the importance of real food, real health, and how to implement it into real life — both during and after treatment.” With the matching funds of the NTA’s founder Gray Graham, the 2016 annual conference attendees helped raise over $6,000 for this inspiring organization.
FARM TO CONSUMER LEGAL DEFENSE FUND
Little is closer to our hearts than the local farmer who strives to cultivate sustainable, organic, GMO-free foods to nourish our communities. The Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund “protects the rights of farmers and consumers to engage in direct commerce; it protects the rights of farmers to sell the products of the farm and the rights of consumers to access the foods of their choice from the source of their choice.”
