Who is Monsanto, and why do we march?
Monsanto Corporation is a leading producer of genetically engineered (GE) seed and of the herbicide glyphosate, which it markets under the "Roundup" brand.
Research studies have shown that Monsanto’s genetically-modified foods can lead to serious health conditions such as the development of cancer tumors, infertility and birth defects.
If you are interested in getting involved, please email Jill at [masked].
Vendors who can sell goods that reflect this or provide samples and information about your products or services and how they reflect these principles.
Workshops to help get people interactive and become more aware of what they can do to create change in their lives and beyond. Workshops on gardening, cooking, label reading, etc. are all things we'd like to see.
