GMOs in Our Food Supply and How to Avoid Them
An Interactive Workshop
Saturday, April 27
At Sport Hill Farm (SHF), 596 Sport Hill Road, Easton, CT
$20 per person includes a $5 voucher good for SHF organic vegetables
What are Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)? Why are they considered risky and unsustainable? Since GM foods aren’t labeled, how are consumers supposed to avoid them when shopping and eating out?
Analiese Paik, founder of the Fairfield Green Food Guide, will lead a lively, informative, and interactive 1-hour session that answers all these questions and empowers guests to make Non-GMO food choices at home, at the grocery store, in restaurants, and at the farmers’ market.
Analiese is a local-sustainable food advocate and the founder and editor of the Fairfield Green Food Guide. She frequently writes and speaks on the topic of GMOs and continues to advocate for the labeling of genetically engineered foods.
Sport Hill Farm is a family-owned organic vegetable and fruit farm that offers summer CSA and crop cash programs, participates in the Westport Farmers’ Market, and is host to The Unquowa School’s Summer Farm Camp. Visit their farm stand between May and Thanksgiving to enjoy a wide variety of estate-grown organic vegetables, herbs, melons and ground cherries.
