How much do you know about the food you eat? What about gardening & lawn care?
Sunday, January 19, internationally recognized speaker Howard Vlieger addresses these questions, drawing from his insights and experiences. A third generation farmer and “student of the soil”, Vlieger shares his hands-on knowledge of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and its chemical partner glyphosate. He will discuss the impacts of these two on soil, crops, animals eating the crops, and human health. Genetic engineering and the resulting genetically modified organisms have huge implications for every aspect of their use. Howard is co-author of a first-of-its-kind scientific study on the effects of feeding non-GMO and GMO grains to hogs for their lifetime as meat animals.
Surprise guests Brett and Dave Wilcox are a father-son team from Huntington Beach, www.runningthecountry.com , passing through Riverside on their journey for
