1. PRODUCE FOR PANTRIES: The most excellent group, Produce for Pantries, hopes to line up thousands of new gardeners to plant a row for the hungry and donate fresh produce to food banks. Our community is full of folks who need a little assistance. We are a generous people, so please get on board with this very worthy endeavor. Find them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/produceforpantries or through Grow Local Colorado.
2. GMO/GE LABELING IN COLORADO: This morning the group Thrive Sustainable Solutions invited us to join their campaign to get a GMO/GE labeling initiative on the 2014 ballot, please attend this meetup. Here is a positive way to channel your energy for good if you are as heartbroken as I am over the Prop 37 defeat in California. Expect to see crazy opposition and a massive influx of industrial agriculture dollars to thwart us. We all need to get on board and spread this message far and wide to our networks. GE/GMOs have been banned in numerous countries as study after study show they cause food allergies, obesity, diabetes and cancer. GE/GMOs are one of the greatest human health threats we face. I urge you to get involved.
Thanks all! Happy New Year!
