defining "organic" standards

Hello, gardeners:

Our program needs help!  Our gardens are supposedly pesticide- and
herbicide-free.  That is not the reality, however.  We are undertaking
efforts to enforce this rule fairly and with an educational slant.  I am not
a chemist, nor even a horticultural expert of any sort.  The more I try to
learn about this, the more "shades of gray" I discover.  Does anyone out
there have any simple, straight-forward, user-friendly guidelines that spell
out, unequivocally, what isn't allowed (brand names, etc.), why it's not
allowed, and alternative solutions that might be tried?

I am grateful for whatever assistance any of you out there are able to
