Film Series Highlighting GMO issue comes to Port Townsend

GMO CORN needlesFree Film Series on GMO issues comes to Port Townsend.  Just in time to support the I-522 Statewide initiative to label GMO’s, the film series starts on August 26th. The Film series is organized by Local 20/20 and co-sponsored by several other community organizations including The Community Rights Coalition of Jefferson County.

This provocative film series shines a light on what has happened in the past two decades to our global food system. You will learn how to make food choices that will keep you healthy, help our local farmers stay viable, and protect nature’s ecosystems.
