Is LA going to follow in BC’s Footsteps and declare itself GMO free? Given that the urban vote was overwhelmingly for labelling, it is just a matter of time! My brother Arjan, who is this morning teaching city kids about organic gardening has great faith in the urban gardening revolution. LA councillors Koretz and O’Farrell are presenting a motion to LA council this morning. They are also giving a press conference beforehand. Speakers include Nisha Vida, whom I met in LA last month. (See post: GMO OMG LA Premiere.) Please click on the link below to know more about LA GMO Free and read the press release.
I’m so excited about this! This is hot on the heels of Washington’s impending vote to label GMOs (Vote YES on 522) and the encouraging news from Kauai and Hawaii whose councils have voted just this week to restrict and declare pesticide use in GMO production. Mahalo to Hawaii. I see the positive vibes travel through the waters, waves and droplets. They carry hope and tropical sunshine. They carry the gentle Hawaii breeze, the thunderous force of 100 foot waves, the hopes and dreams of a better world.
