Hey Permies,

I just found a great website that I want to share with all of you. It's run by a gentleman named Jeffrey Smith who has been studying GMO's and pesticides exclusively for 18 years. The site offers tons of info for "consumers" (l hate that label) and activists, as well as training to teach people how to speak about GMO's and ChemAg to inform people of the actual risks of both.

Look under the "Events" tab for the GMO Speaker Training Course which is only $20. This looks like a great resource to get training to be able to defeat any argument for GMO's with hard facts and science. I heard Jeff on the radio tonight on Coast To Coast AM with George Noori and he is a very well informed, well spoken guy with very strong scientific studies and legal evidence from countries all over the world. (most of which have banned the nasty stuff.) Here's the site:

Paul, if you would be so kind, could you please promote this link on the dailyish email er something? (I'll even declare you to be "High Commander of Organic Loveliness with Bacon, Cheese and Sparkles") I think that getting training to speak well in favor of organic -vs- GMO is an important resource that many communities could use. The good folks in the Rogue River Valley of Southern Oregon just won a big battle against GMO's in their area and I sent this link out to everyone on the SPRG (Siskiou Permaculture Resource Group) list to help with the future battles that will surely come. The Astroturf group "Oregonians for Food and Shelter" that the Chemikill companies created is already asking for the GMO ban to be overruled claiming it violates the Right-To-Farm law there. That's like someone wanting to grow poppies and coca and saying the right to farm law protects them. Total Lamesauce. He does lectures and is involved in the Tipping Point Network and there's even a group in Kalispell if you want to get connected with them.

Thanks for all you guys do, Joe
