‘7.5 Million + 2 Petition’ Seeks to Plant a Grassroots Movement to Pass Prop 37, ‘The Right to Know – Label GMOs’ on Nov Ballot.
By Leslie Goldman. AKA Your Enchanted Gardener
The ‘7.5 Million + 2 Petition’ is designed to help raise awareness that more than 7.5 million people are committed to vote for Prop 37 on Nov Ballot – The Right to Know – Label GMOs.
‘Grow a Healthier Pizza!’ is my rally cry to pass Prop 37. This September 1-10, I will set out on a ten-day Caravan to The 2nd Annual Heirloom Expo in Santa Rosa, September 11-13, 2012. That event falls about two months before the November 6 election. The Caravan is the first leg of the Journey to win back our sacred seeds. I believe we are all sacred seeds as healthy food grows from heirloom seeds. The Caravan will continue to gain signatures for the ‘7.5 Million + 2 Petition’ on Change Org. I see Prop 37, The California Right to Know and to Label GMOs (genetically modified organisms) on 2012 Ballot Initiative creating the greatest Grass Roots Movement in California History.
”It will take a majority of those who vote November 6 to win this,” said Pamm Larry, the Grandmother who started the Label GMOs Campaign. She was one of the early signers of the ‘7.5 Million + 2 Petition.’ ‘7.5 Million + 2′ would be a majority of those who voted in the 2008 California General Election. The petition aims to make sure we have the votes we need before Election Day. “I am asking for people to take the ‘ 1 Action a Day Pledge’ on the Label GMOs Site, and for others to help the campaign by seeking out Official Endorsements from Organizations and individuals with circles of influence in their communities.
THE LIFE CONNECTION
STORY IS HERE AS WELL
PAMM LARRY SIGNS THE ‘7.5 MILLION + 2 PETITION’ YOUR SIGNATURE IS INVITED TOO!
Pamm Larry, right, is the Grandmother who started Prop 37, the California Right to Know Label GMOs Ballot Initiative that will be voted on November 6. The time is now to Grow the Greatest Grass Roots Movement in California History. Label GMOs in California. Go here to Sign the ‘7.5 Million + 2 Petition.’
WHAT’S UP WITH THE NUMBER 7.5 MILLION + 2 CALIFORNIANS?
7.5 Million is half of the number of Registered Voters in California who voted in the last general election. We need a few more than half, whatever the number who register, to win.
I was with Pamm Larry, May 29, 2012. Someone asked, how many people voted in California? She said 15 million. She said that we needed a couple people plus 50 % to win the California Right to Know Label GMOs Ballot Proposition. So…I thought…that meant we needed a magical number: “7.5 Million + 2 Californians” to Vote “Yes.” Get it?
The ‘7.5 Million + 2 Petition’ is about helping to build a powerful Grass Roots Movement in step with the beat of nature. Grow a Healthier Pizza in our Rally Cry!
WE CALIFORNIANS–WITH THE SUPPORT OF OUR FRIENDS IN OTHER STATES AND NATIONS–
AFFIRM WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT IS IN OUR FOOD. WE WILL LABEL GMO FOODS NOV 6, 2012.
I See and Seed… the Greatest Grassroots Movement in California History
“If commercial interests–once again– have convinced Congress–to do business as usual–and that profits are more important than our children having improved lunches in schools, if Congress has now said that a few tablespoons of tomato sauce define Pizza as a Vegetable, then we, as Conscious Consumers will Grow a Healthier Pizza through the action of the ‘7.5 Million + 2 Petition.’ To top off this pizza, we want to know the quality of our Ingredients. If pizza is made from cans and containers that have ingredients that are made with GMOs–Genetically Modified Organisms–We have a ‘Right To Know,’ and say “Label GMO’s!” just like people in near 50 other nations. Together now, the people of California–with support from people of other states and nations signing as well–will build the Greatest Grass Roots Movement in California History. We are ‘Sacred Seeds’ It is time now to ‘Win Back Our Sacred Seeds.’ ” –Leslie Goldman, Your Enchanted Gardener, Plant Your Dream Blog
Millions of Californians are without their knowledge eating GMOs every day. GMOs are Genetically Modified Organisms. They have been in our food for a number of decades. Somebody thought this was O.K. to include GMOs in the daily foods we eat, but did not take the time to ask us first if we wanted them there. Near 50 nations of the world have the integrity to give their people choice to know if they are eating GMOs in their corn, soy, and a host of other foods, but in the US, since the inception of the idea of the FDA in 1906, Commercial interests have placed profits over producing healthy kids and influenced heavily our food supply. Congress, in Fall 2011, declared that tomato sauce qualified Pizza as a vegetable to keep from the added expense of improving foods in our schools. Toward that end, we are coming together, bonding together, opening an honest Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Food about GMOs. We are here to educate ourselves, and our fellow Californians that we might each stand in the light about what we are eating. We believe that in signing this petition we are Cultivating Food Justice on our own tables. Our bottomline is that we have a Right to Know our food ingredients and to Label GMO Foods. We intend to create a massive grassroots movement to support this.
We love California. We love good food. Many of us are gaining confidence now that we can grow some of our own foods. We trust the process of initiative in the Golden State. We come together now as registered voters, and as others around the country and from many nations, that the people of California become aware that GMOs are in many of our foods. We each, endorse the California Right to Know Label GMOs. We are letting each other know that we are standing together here to Grow a Healthier Pizza for our Kids.

Food Reform is Needed! —Alfred W. McCann,”The Science of Eating” and “Starving America” (1918,1919)
“The work must be done in the schools.
Our American children must be taught the meaning of depraved foods, that they must learn how foods are processed, bleached, colored, sifted, bolted, denatured, degerminated, demineralized, chemically treated and refined; that they must be taught the relationship of foodless food to sickness and death; that they must be taught the relationship of natural food to health and life.”- Food Reform is Needed! –Alfred W. McCann, “Starving America.”(1918)

This is Chieko Shiina, a mother and organic farmer who lives within the contaminated area around Fukushima. We planted Seeds during the Better World Conference July 7, 2012. in another part of San Diego, July 2-10. 2012. the Trans Pacific Partership Agreements were being negotiated between corporations interacting with government agencies. One reported leaked document said that the corporations aimed to protect their investments against money lost as a result of the enforcement of environment laws. Cheiko favored Laws to Label GMOs and give people the Right to know. Japan, she felt, was keeping the world in the dark about effects of radiation poisoning. He planted the Well Being of Fukushima.
Kidsfrom Niños del Cuchama Centro de Permacultura Urbana A.C. in Tecate, Mexico helped “Grow a Healthier Pizza” May 2012. They ground KAMUT® Khorasan ancient wheat into kernels at the 2nd Festival of Traditional Medicine for the Americas. I returned a few weeks later and a teacher told me the grass was about eight inches tall. The project, Grow a Healthier Pizza, involves signing the ‘7.5 Million + 2 Petition on Change.org to win the ‘Right to Know-Label GMOs,’ the 2012 California Ballot Initiative. “Grow a Healthier Pizza” leads to getting our beat back with nature. Gain confidence! You can grow food from heirloom organic seeds.
To Inspire a Nation of Gardeners.
To Continue the Journey of Food Reform, a tradition in American History.
as we Win Back Our Sacred Seeds.
We need Food Reform to make sure we all have a Pure Food Law as once established through Congress by Dr. Harvey W. Wiley MD, Father of the vision of the FDA. I am asking you to Co-create now the Greatest Grass Roots Movement in California History that wins the Right to Know Label GMOs 2012 Ballot Initiative, and continue Food Reform. You, dear friend, need heirloom seeds to Plant Your Dream.
My ideal: Give each child seeds to ‘Plant Your Dream.’ Create a world of gardeners and millions more doctors of the soil who are farming. I saw the Niños del Cuchama Kids a few weeks later at the World Environment Day sponsored by the Fundacion La Puerta, Professor’s Park. A teacher from the school greeted me with love. She said the children had been calling me the “Dreammaker.” I was touched. This amazing school epitomizes good education for children. It is one of the project with kids I bless.
TESTIMONIAL…A Voice of Youth
Dear Uncle Leslie,
I really enjoyed your presentation yesterday. It uplifted my spirits and made me feel like I had to do something to make our planet better. Personally, I don’t eat vegetables but everything you said changed my mind about it. I do need to change my eating habits and I do need to grow my own vegetables. You kept the classes’ attention. You were funny, and you kept us interested. You’ll probable be the man that’ll actually get our generation to do their part in helping rebuild our enchanted garden.”

‘SACRED SEEDS’ WHO HAVE SIGNED THE ‘7.5 + 2 PETITION’
Thank you for Being the New Ground that is needed now to form the Greatest Grass Roots Movement in California History. More than 7.5 Million + 2 are needed for California to Label GMOs because we have a Right to Know. ‘Grow a Healthier Pizza’ is our rally call. ‘Grow a Healthier Pizza’ means gaining confidence that we can grow some of our own food, so we make decisions in harmony with the beat of nature. We no longer look to Congress to grapple with the the honest science needed for our people to ‘Survive This Day’ and ‘Thrive!’ We are Sacred Seeds; wee require heirloom seeds to grow our food. We have taken Our Seeds are off the Shelf; we are coming out of the ‘Box.’ The Mountain says, “Plant Your Dream!” How Fast Can a Dream Grow? As Fast as a Blade of Grass!
I aim to leave September 1 to travel north, enlisting support for The Right to Know, Label GMOs along the way. My theme is Grow a Healthier Pizza! I am moving forward the work of Food Reform started more than 100 years ago by the founder of the vision for the FDA, Dr. Harvey W. Wiley and his ally Alfred W McCann who wrote “The Science of Eating” and “Starving America.” Romain Rolland, the Nobel Peace Prize Winner, also lived during this time following The Great War, the War to end all Wars. He wrote letters to the People of Influence of his time. These were published in his books “Above The Battle” and “The Forerunners.” I am continuing, in the tradition of these men, who were peacemakers of their time.
You are Invited to Sign
I hope you, too, will sign the Petition. Together we will win Prop 37 on the California Ballot November 6, the Right to Know-Label GMOs. Together, we will create The Greatest Grass Roots Moving in California History. We can Grow a Healthier Pizza!
