Even at the local level, there are a wide variety of farmers and
gardeners who use a wide variety of approaches and an even wider
variety of both natural and synthetic products, since there is no
agreed-upon definition of "organic", "natural", and/or
"sustainable". An intelligent use of "Just Say No" requires that one
have a bit of information about what it is to which one says No. Not
everyone who says "I use organic, natural, sustainable methods and
products" uses organic, natural, sustainable methods and products.
In other words, there is BS at the local, organic, sustainable
level. The need is not to know that there is BS, but how to identify
and, one hopes, not step in it.
