Health Risks of Genetically Modified Foods (And How to Avoid Them) at Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship

October 11, 2011 from 7pm to 9pm
Join us for a presentation on how foods are genetically engineered, the known & unknown dangers from their consumption, and how you can protect your family by the choices you make every week.  Help to achieve a “consumer rejection tipping point” which will force GMOs out of the US market, just as they have already successfully done in most European countries. Together we can do this. In fact, momentum is already afoot. From Oct 1-16, thousands of people will be walking from NY City to the…See More

Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
It is always on my mind; I seem to be constantly keeping track of the resources I consume and how things are so wildly out of balance in our society.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I am passionate about local food, native biodiversity, and sustainability. But I am stuck in the cycle of commuting by car to work, living in rentals, and just trying to get by. I want to get unstuck!!
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I have masters degrees in soil science and applied mathematics. I also have a bachelors degree in chemical engineering and work as a permit engineer for the Northwest Clean Air Agency. I love chemistry, which comes through in my cooking and soapmaking endeavors. I also have a three-year-old son who teaches me new things every day.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Geneva

Hi Erica! I look forward to connecting! Thanks for getting involved on TW. I've forwarded our message to your email, and I understand about unopened emails..
.I have mine set for an extended automatic reply since I get so far behind.

I almost majored in soils, but back then the universities only offered the study of dead soil, as in no life, just the mineral/chemical non-living matter....so much more is now known on compost and still the mysteries of life remain!

You're welcome to call and come visit sometime...walk/work/relax or play.
