If you are interested in whether Boulder County Agricultural land will have GMO crops grown on it, come to this meeting. Go here for background on the issue.
The GMKnow organization invites all interested people to attend and help the cause. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
They say “currently, of the 9 members who make up this council, three are chemical farmers who plant GMO crops, lease land from the County and stand to benefit directly from the policy that they are helping to write, hardly a democratic or representative process. This will be the one and only time we have an opportunity to collectively let them know our hearts prior to the policy being written.”
GMKnow will table an information booth for six Saturdays and six Wednesdays at the Boulder County Farmers Market. If you’d like to volunteer for this, Email email@example.com
