Family Farming, Good Food and Its Genetically Engineered Opposite
Presented by Jim Gerritsen
For the last 35 years Jim has run Wood Prairie Farm in Maine growing MOFGA certified organic seeds and organic food.
Now as President of the Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association (OSGATA), Jim is spearheading a lawsuit against corporate agriculture giant Monsanto to protect small farms from transgenic GE contamination of organic seed and organic crops.
Additional Information about OSGATA et al v. Monsanto is available at
The Latest News on Organic Seed Growers nd Trade Assn et al.
Jim's presentation will focus on what each person needs to know to protect their family's health, the environment, small farmers, and the public right of access to good clean food.
