CNG Membership Campaign

Thank you for participating in our membership drive as a Referring Member! Certified Naturally grown

For every new member that current members refer to CNG, we'll give the current member a $25 Gift Card to be used on anything in the CNG store, including design services, certification dues, and marketing materials. The more members you refer to CNG, the more Gift Cards you can earn!

New members are also eligible to receive a $25 Gift Card. Their details are at

Depending on your preference, the "Gift Card" might be a physical card we mail to you - useful if you pay by check - or it could take the form of a discount code to be used in the CNG store, if you prefer to use a credit card online. The code may be used only once, so we will provide a different code for each new member you refer.

I wanted to let you know about Certified Naturally Grown, the grassroots alternative to organic that relies on a peer-review certification model that verifies we farm without synthetic chemicals or GMOs, just like certified organic farmers. CNG maintains high standards, minimal paperwork, and affordable dues. Nearly 800 farms in 47 states and six Canadian provinces participate.

CNG is running a membership drive until October 31. If you apply before then, they'll send you a $25 Gift Card to be used on anything in the CNG store, including dues or marketing materials, once you complete your certification. You can get all the details here at

A few details about gift cards for Referring Members...

The new member you referred must apply by 10/31/18.

The Gift Card/code is redeemable after the new member completes their certification by submitting their Declaration, Inspection Report, and certification dues. 

The new member must complete their certification in a timely manner, no later than 12/31/18.

You must redeem your gift card by 3/31/19.

Only one current member may receive credit as the referring person for each new member. The new member typically mentions who referred them on their application, but they may also do this when they return the gift card that they receive when their application is accepted. The referring member can help ensure they get credit by registering their participation here
