Roofing tar paper would not be a good idea but not for the reason you asked
about. You want to use a product that will allow water to pass through
otherwise your path could flood. In addition, the tar paper is coated with
chemicals. When water accumulates on top of the paper, it has to go
somewhere (that somewhere would be your garden plots), taking those harmful
chemicals with it.
Organic gardening does not permit the use of synthetic chemicals in the form
of fertilizers and pesticides. Here are a few websites which will clarify
the method; you can find much more information by googling "organic garden":

Does anyone know whether it's okay to use roofing tarpaper as a weedblock
a path in an organic garden?
Also--does anyone know of a one or two page summary of standards for an
organic garden--what is and is not permissable?
