We are a small group of dedicated individuals who are concerned about our health, our environment and making the world a safe and sustainable place for our children and grandchildren.
We always welcome new members to our group and are happy to have you join us or ask questions. Your contributions and interest are encouraged. We need help stuffing envelopes, setting up shade tents at public events, web support, speakers, spreading the word, people to work at information tables and other tasks as they come along. You do not need any special skills or knowledge to contribute to this cause.
We support the goals of GE Free BC.
Their Vision Statement: GE-Free BC envisions a food-sovereign Canada where no Genetically Engineered life forms are created, patented, approved, bought, sold or traded. Where Canada is a leader in safe and sustainable agriculture and is known as a GE-Free Nation. Where Canada actively secures international agreements that preserve regional bio-diversity and promote food sovereignty. Where community based farmers have the right and ability to farm and save seed from year to year. This vision is aimed to protect the health and sustainability of communities, animals and ecosystems.
One accomplishment that has happened through hard work of many individuals and groups like ours around Vancouver Island was to have Vancouver Island declared a GE Free zone.
