book cover image

Today's London Free Press brings the article on the national protests against introduction of genetically modified alfalfa. 80% of corn grown in Ontario and 60% of soy- we read further- is already genetically engineered. What is happening to seeds, local farming, local food? Janisse Ray, a New York Times writer is the author of recently published The Seed Underground: a Growing Revolution to Save Food. Did you know that of thousands seed varietes available at the turn of the 20 century only 6 percent is available now? Ray tells stories about gardeners who are preserving traditional food by growing it from saved seeds. A perfect reading for the coming Spring and the Earth Day and the Earth Week celebration. If you want to learn more about the state of our food, causes of illnesses and how to stay healthy come and join us on Wednesday, April 10 at 7 pm  in the Wolf Performance Hall, Central Library,  for the screening of the great documentary FoodMatters. The film is showing interviews with several leading experts in nutrition and natural healing. As Dr. Christane Northrup said: "Anyone who is serious about their health needs to see this stunning film."
