LIST OF UPCOMING EVENTS:
- Tuesday, April 29 at 7:00 pm — Welcome to your GMOcery - GMOs from Purchase to Plate
- Are you concerned about GMOs in your diet? 80% of what's on grocery shelves now contains "genetically engineered" (GMO) ingredients. These have not been proven safe (except by Monsanto).
BUT, since they are not required to be labeled, how do you identify which foods to keep out of your pantry and off your plate? Want to know how to shop GMO free within the current food markets of Northern NJ? Join Food Coach and Wellness Educator Ina Denburg for an informing evening of discussion. Her “GMOcery” display may contain items that will surprise you.
Ina Denburg is the Healthy Living columnist for GoodFoodWorld.com where she has written several articles on GMOs over the past two years. These and other healthy living articles and recipes can be found on her website continuumLiving.us.
Co-sponsoring groups include the Gateway Group NJ Sierra Club, the Cornucopia Network of NJ, the Caldwell CSA, CommunityGreen, Food & Water Watch, Genesis Farm, the Mountain Lakes Organic Co-op, NOFA-NJ, Purple Dragon Co-op, Boxed Organics, and Terra.
This event is free and open to the public. More Information.
