More videos are coming soon from The Future of Soil: Ensuring Resilient Food and Agricultural Systems from our five part learning series that took place from February to June 2018.  The series featured national experts, local farmers, scientists and business members in the fields of soil health science, climate, pollinators, and pesticides. Attendees explored the impacts that their every-day decisions, from the seed they buy to how they grow plants and the food they put on their table, have on the soil.

Mapping the Movement to Create GE-Free Seed Sanctuaries

The jurisdictions shown on this map have created GE-Free Seed Sanctuaries. Will the town, city, county, or state where you live be next?

 

*Josephine County, Oregon passed a ballot measure to ban the cultivation of genetically engineered crops (Measure 17-58) on May 20, 2014. It was approved by 58% of the voters. The county was subsequently sued by a couple of plaintiffs who claimed that the measure was preempted and invalidated by state law - SB 863. That court decision is currently pending appeal. See Oregonions for Safe Farms and Families for the latest updates. Our Family Farms supports the right of all farmers to protect themselves against the threat of genetically engineered crops.
