Problems and Solutions 


05.04.11


With the seemingly unstoppable beast that is Monsanto, simply eating organic is not enough to stay away from genetically modified food. As the USDA is allowing GMO production without adequate testing or even labeling, Norman Solomon moderates a discussion, 'Symposium on the Food Crisis,' with the Center for Food Safety's Jeffrey Smith, author Claire Cummings and Mark Squire from the Non-GMO project. Health implications and legal aspects of the issue will be discussed on Friday, May 6, at the San Rafael Community Center. 618 B St., San Rafael. 6:30-10:30pm. Free. 415.454.0123.

The Marin County Farm-to-Fork Tour exemplifies the alternatives to Monsanto. In collaboration with the Marin Agricultural Land Trust, Bay Area Green Tours provide a day for green-goers to spend on organic farms in Marin County. Visitors will meet the farmers, learn about sustainable agriculture, discover local organic delights and leave educated about true sustainability. For an extra $15, guests can enjoy a pre-ordered lunch made with farm-fresh ingredients. Travel arrangements via shuttle are included on Saturday, May 7, departing from the Marin County Mart, 2257 Larkspur Landing Circle, Larkspur. 9:30am-5:30pm. (Also departing from Gather Restaurant, 2200 Oxford St., Berkeley; 9am-6pm). $85. 510.809.0400.
