Local to Global Series

Why Are Farmers and Communities Here and Around the World Standing Up to Genetically Engineered Crops? What’s the Risk? What’s the Solution?

Come enjoy a GMO-Free Community Potluck (6 pm start) followed by engaging presentations from two international leaders in the fight to protect farmers and our food supply from genetically engineered crops (Presentations start 7:30). 

Our Family Farms Coalition director and Jackson County farmer Elise Higley will give an overview of the local effort to protect Rogue Valley farmers from genetically engineered crops.

Adelita San Vicente Tello is a leader of the effort to stop the growth of genetically engineered corn in Mexico whose efforts led to a federal GMO injunction last year. Dr. Ignacio Chapela is a microbial ecologist at U.C. Berkley and was one of the first scientists to discover genetically engineered genes in the native Mexican maize growing in the remote hills of Oaxaca, Mexico.
