Over the last decade, the GMO contamination of our food has been one of the driving forces for our family to grow as much food as we can on a city lot. This November, Californians will vote on an important issue which just might determine the “future of food.”
Last week a public service music video for Yes on Prop 37 was filmed on location here at the homestead (song by Mia Doi Todd / Directed, shot, and edited by TallTree )
Please note: As a blog, an organization and a family, we usually try to avoid infusing our work with politics. But right now, organic is under attack in this country. Our only hope for getting genetically modified (GMO) foods labeled is happening RIGHT NOW in California.
We believe that the “Right to Know” should be a NON PARTISAN issue. Unfortunately our current president appointed a Monsanto Man to the FDA
This site and our family does NOT endorse any political candidate. We did not write this song or produce the video; however, we, as do many others, believe that Monsanto shouldn’t “mess with our food.”
“Proposition 37: In some circles, GMO stands for ‘God Moves Over'”
“The responsibility of humankind to God’s creation challenges us to examine the possibilities of genetic research and technology in a conscientious, careful and responsible way. Negative impacts on food and the environment must be strenuously avoided,” reads the church’s position on genetic technology. “Because of the effects of genetic technologies on all life, we call for effective guidelines and public accountability to safeguard against any action that might lead to abuse of these technologies. The risks of genetic technology that can hardly be calculated when breeding animals and plants and the negative ecological and social impact on agriculture make the use of this technology doubtful. We approve of modern methods of breeding that respect the existence of the natural borders of species.”
