An Invitation to Join Californians for a Ge-Free Agriculture

The Ecological Farming Association is excited to be a founding member of a new
coalition working to prevent genetically engineered (GE) crops in
California. We are encouraging people to get involved with
this coalition and lend support to the campaign.

Right now California is virtually free of genetic engineering (GE), with
the major exception of GE cotton grown in the Central Valley. In the
next few years, however, the industry hopes to commercialize a new
generation of GE crops in the state, including: Bayer's
herbicide-tolerant rice; Ventria Bioscience's pharmaceutical rice (with
human genes); and, Monsanto's herbicide-tolerant strawberries, lettuce
and rice. Bayer's GE rice was recently approved by the federal
government and could be grown in California soon.

We must stop GE crops in order to continue being a world leader in
organic and sustainable agriculture. Californian farmers and consumers
can lead the way in the rejection of this dangerous technology and
demand a different kind of agriculture.

Please join the campaign today. You can find out more about Californians
for GE-Free Agriculture by visiting our website <http://www.calgefree.org>
and by signing up for our volunteer network to receive updates and
information about getting involved.

Thanks for your support and interest!
