Getting into it: Time for GMOs to go….
Have you wondered what all the fuss about GMO (genetically modified organisms) is? Doesn’t it get your interest that much of the developed world is on the other side of the discussion from where our coutry is?
It’s a really amazing thing that we get internationally known and well respected authors and speakers to visit the island on their tours, and this is one of them….Elaine Kendell has more:
Jeffery Smith is coming to the San Juan Islands and will speak at Skagit Valley College, September 17th at 7pm. Smith, who is the author of Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette, will present the health risks of GMOs.
Smith travels the U.S. speaking on GMOs, including in the company of Canadian canola farmer Percy Schmeiser, who challenged Monsanto over the contamination of his crops with Round-Up Ready canola. Jeffrey Smith is founder of the Institute for Responsible Technology.
Join Jeffrey Smith to learn more about the issues surrounding GMOs. Whether you are for or against a GMO-Free San Juan Islands, this is an opportunity for public discussion. All are welcome.
