Growing up in Switzerland and love growing fruits and healthy things. Lets get together for a Veggie Blues BBQ with your pets and friends!
I am organizing an event where i would like to involve local growers and people who like to be part of a nice time combined with good food and good people and all the good things that nature has to offer .
please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or like to be part of a movement that is being rewarded with healthier and more fulfilling lifestyle and feeling good .
We also plan on doing a campaign where we would provide an edible garden in the home of each neighborhood in the City of Tucson with the help of our local sustainable orgs.
I envision the new project we are taking on here to be an extension of the work and brand you carry there, and would love to discuss the possibilities with one or as many of your organizers as possible. I look forward to working with you on long lasting change, and shall we all March Against Monsanto & Co..
Organic Consumers Association, April 9, 2013 to use in future legislation. Mahalo Nui loa. Hawaii is still more active and steadfast than ever. Onipa’a! (Be steadfast") the last words of Hawaii’s former Queen Liliuokalani!
Our HI state motto: Ua mau ke ea o ka ’aina i ka pono! The life of the land (includes our bodies) is perpetuated in righteousness.
let me begin by saying that I am totally for GMO labeling and that you guys have been doing a great work. To take it to the extra mile, I would strongly recommend you to correct the following information:
“Much of the World Already Requires Labeling of Genetically Engineered Foods
61 countries with over 40% of the world’s population already label genetically engineered foods, including the entire European Union. Even China labels genetically engineered foods. California should lead on this important issue. What do these countries know that we don’t?"
I’m French and living in France and I can tell you that NO labeling for GMO’s exist. The only label you’ll see is “without GMO’s”, and products containing GMO’s are not required to be labeled as such.
We have created a FREE, open platform for the exchange of product information. It’s a simple idea; we put a “digital label” on every product – from food and cosmetics to toys and electronics – and open it to the public.
Consumers and organizations can now instantly see and share all of the reasons to buy or avoid any product – from environmental, political, and social reasons, to health and safety and even just personal taste – simply by scanning the product’s barcode.
Please Follow this Link to help me stop the release of Genetically engineered Salmon!
Proposition 37 did not pass last year, but a new similar labeling ballot is in the works for 2014 thus making this a currently relevant issue for voters…and our students will be voting soon!
Our Biofitness students (all freshmen in our integrated Biology, Health, and PE class) have been researching and analyzing the safety and labeling of genetically engineered foods and the science and controversy behind it. The driving question for this 6 week project is: “Do genetically engineered foods pose significant risk to human health and should we, as a society, require that genetically engineered foods be labeled?”
Every 9th grade student is individually writing an depth research paper and analyzing at least one actual scientific journal in preparation for a community event where teams of students will take a stance on the driving question. Community members will also be asked to vote on topic.
The event is at New Tech High on the evening of March 18th from 6:00-7:30pm, and we would be honored if any of you would be able to attend and make sure information being provided to the public is as accurate as possible. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions. Please see the attached flier for further detail – we also hope that you may help us with encouraging other community members to attend.
