New Community Gardening Program August 15th: Understanding GMOs

Have you heard folks talk about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and wanted to know more about them? Want to learn how to identify products and produce that do or don’t use GMOs on your next trip to the grocery store or farmer’s market? Join us Saturday, August 15th, for a lecture by Jennifer Ewing, titled “Understanding GMOs.” 

Jennifer will explain what a GMO is, and what it means to your food security, your health, and to the environment. She will show you how to read an ingredient list to guide you in making healthy choices of the packaged foods and fresh produce that you purchase.

This lecture runs from 10:00-11:00 AM in the library’s large meeting room and is free to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

We hope to see you there!
