New Kinds of Genetic Engineering Threaten Organic Farms

Genetic engineering may be one of the biggest threats to the existence of organic agriculture. Now major biotech companies are focused on genetically engineered environments and GMOs that are designed to spread out. What are the real costs of genetically engineered soil microbes, insects, CRISPR seeds, and DNA spray to organic agriculture, to the livelihoods of farmers, to our health, and to the environment? Join us for a conversation about this next generation of genetic engineering, the real agro-ecology solutions, and what we can do to address this threat.
