Hope this day finds you healthy and happy. Thank you everyone for coming out to the Kaua’i rally against Monsanto in Kapa’a. Over 2 million people rallied around the world, great to take part. We start with a video of that rally, and another of the rally on Oahu. In addition, we have many links to share of the latest GMO Free information from the last few weeks.
Lots of info below, thanks for reading and feel free to share this list.
— “GMO Free Zone” yard signs, as a reminder we just received them in and they are available by calling Mi-Key at 651-9603. We are asking $5 for the small and $10 for the large to cover printing. Be great to have these all over the island.
