Hillcrest Farmers’ Market Gives A Big Yes! Please help us Label Genetically Engineered Food!
TEN WEEKS, 850,000 SOLID SIGNATURES AND WE WILL BE ON THE CALIFORNIA BALLOT
Elizabeth Lambe came to Ocean Beach’s People’s Food Store Saturday January 27 to train volunteers for the upcoming Label GMOs ballot initiative. The ballot initiative launches right after California Attorney General O.K.’s the words–Feb 15, 2012. I went out January 29, 2012 to test the waters at the HIllcrest Farmers’ Market. I received a big yes from my favorite vendors who all were in favor of having petitions at their vendor booths.
SARA WILL HELP
Sara Burghardt works with Suzie’s Farm. She was at the meeting Saturday, and we agreed it would be a good idea to have petitions at the Suzie’s Vendor stand at the HIllcrest Farmers’ Market.
TAYLOR MARTIS KATZ, OF SUZIE’S FARM AND LIZ ROZZI, OF TERRA BELLA RANCH
Big yes’s from Taylor Martis Katz of Suzie’s Farm, and Liz Rossi, who has my favorite organic nuts at the HIlcrest Farmers’ Market.
VEGETABLES AT JR ORGANIC ARE IN FAVOR OF LABEL GMOs TOO!
Out of the box tomatoes, first the season, are grown by organic methods at JR Organic. These are the first of the season tomatoes and they are all smiles that local shoppers at the Hillcrest Farmers’ Market will have an opportunity to sign the petition to support the ballot
My next stop was at JR Organic, where numbers of the organic vegetables welcomed the move to Label GMOs. Shopping your local farmers market is one of the first things you can do to turn the tide against GMOs. Organic food is safe from GMOs. When you shop local local farmers’ market you are supporting an alternative approach to Roundup Ready Technology. The ballot measure will ensure that we know what foods are grown with GMOs, so we all have a choice. Right now, most people are in the dark.
