"The Future of Food" Free Film Screening 10/21/2011 in Palo Alto

“The Future of Food” Time to Act on GMOs October 21, 2011, Palo Alto
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are sprouting up throughout in our food supply. Meanwhile, government and agribusiness are like foxes guarding the hen house - promoting more GMOs while completely ignoring the potential risks.
It’s time to act! On October 21, we’ll be showing “The Future of Food,” a powerful and influential film on what has happened to our food supply. In follow-on discussion, we’ll let you know about the efforts to label GMOs and how you can get involved.
“The Future of Food is a compelling, eye-opening documentary that I consider a "must-see documentary" by anyone who eats food (which probably includes you). Even if you think you know everything worth knowing about your food, there's still a dark secret the biotech companies believe U.S. consumers should not be allowed to know: That many foods are genetically engineered with dangerous pesticides and foreign DNA, and there is currently no U.S. law requiring their labeling as such.”

Join us to share garden bounty. Bring what you have to share; take home something you don’t.
Think of it as a “free” backyard farmers’ market. Bring your homegrown fruit, vegetables, eggs,
herbs, honey, and flowers!
Come meet other artistic people, share stories, clear out your closets, and help save stuff from
the landfill at the Craft Share! Bring your old arts and crafts supplies, Halloween and other
paraphernalia, and take home what you really need.
Throughout the Bay Area, neighbors are coming together to share. Our Palo Alto sharing event
is supported by a coalition of community ecological organizations and neighborhood groups
including: Acterra, Barron Park Green Team, Barron Park Garden Network, Barron Park Assn,
Common Ground, City of Palo Alto Community Gardens, Slow Food South Bay, Transition Palo
Alto and Transition Silicon Valley.
The Common Ground store is open during the event, so plan to stop in to get any supplies
you need to continue your garden bounty. Also, the event is located only 3 blocks from the
California Ave Farmers’ Market, which is open from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. You will have time
to shop or have lunch at the market after the event.
