WE CALIFORNIANS--AND OUR FRIENDS IN OTHER STATES AND NATIONS--HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT IS IN OUR FOOD.  WE WANT TO LABEL GMO FOODS.  THE RIGHT TO KNOW & THE KNOW HOW TO GROW OUR OWN FOOD GO HAND IN HAND  

 

"If commercial interests--once again-- have convinced Congress--to do business as usual--and that profits are more important than our children having improved lunches in schools, if Congress has now said that a few tablespoons of tomato sauce define Pizza as a Vegetable, then we, as Conscious Consumers will Grow a Healthier Pizza through the action of the '7.5 Million + 2 Petition.' To top off this pizza, we want to know the quality of our ingredients.  If pizza is made from cans and containers that have ingredients that are made with GMOs--Genetically Modified Organisms--We have a 'Right To Know,' and say "Label GMO's!" just like people in near 50 other nations. Together now, the people of California--with support from people of other states and nations signing as well--will build the Greatest Grassroots Movement in California History. We are 'Sacred Seeds'  It is time now to 'Win Back Our Sacred Seeds.' " --Leslie Goldman, Your Enchanted Gardener,  Plant Your Dream Blog 

 

Millions of Californians are without their knowledge eating GMOs every day. GMOs are Genetically Modified Organisms. They have been in our food for a number of decades.  Somebody thought this was O.K. to include GMOs in the daily foods we eat, but did not take the time to ask us first if we wanted them there. Near 50 nations of the world have the integrity to give their people choice to know if they are eating GMOs in their corn, soy, and a host of other foods, but in the US, since the inception of the idea of the FDA in 1906, Commercial interests have placed profits over producing healthy kids and influenced heavily our food supply.  Congress, in Fall 2011, declared that tomato sauce qualified Pizza as a vegetable to keep from the added expense of improving foods in our schools.  Toward that end, we are coming together, bonding together, opening an honest Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Food about GMOs. We are here to educate ourselves, and our fellow Californians that we might each stand in the light about what we are eating. We believe that in signing this petition we are Cultivating Food Justice on our own tables.   Our bottomline is that we have a Right to Know our food ingredients and to Label GMO Foods.  We intend to create a massive grassroots movement to support this.  

We love California. We love good food.  Many of us are gaining confidence now that we can grow some of our own foods.  We trust the process of initiative in the Golden State.  We come together now as registered voters, and as others around the country and from many nations, that the people of California become aware that GMOs are in many of our foods. We each, endorse the California Right to Know Label GMOs.  We are letting each other know that we are standing together here to Grow a Healthier Pizza for our Kids.

WHAT'S UP WITH THE NUMBER 7.5 MILLION + 2 CALIFORNIANS?

I was with Pamm Larry, May 29, 2012.  She is the Grandma who started the California Right to Know Label GMOs Proposition that is on the Nov 6 ballot.  Someone asked,  how many people voted in California?  She said 15 million.  She said that we needed a couple people plus 50 % to win the California Right to Know Label GMOs Ballot Proposition.  So...I thought...that meant we needed a magical number: "7.5 Million + 2 Californians"  to Vote "Yes."  Get it?

 The "7.5 Million + 2" Petition is about counting our numbers now, and helping to build the most powerful Grassroots Movements California has seen.

      Victory for YES on Prop 37 is now in the hands of the Seeds of Peace. This video was made 20 days before the Vote. A Grassroots movement, the strongest ever known in CA, was in our hands to prevail over millions of dollars being spent to convince us that we did not need the Right to Know what was in our foods. 7.5 Million + 2 was the estimated number of Seeds of Peace that were being asked to win this. Evolution, and the Seeds called us out during the final days of this Historic moment. In order to emphasis the nutritional need and influence of organic food and heirloom seeds, I ask, the question, "What is Growing in Your Pizza Box?" because Congress

      Prop 37 Wins Because of YOU!

      No on 37 is spending more than 27 million to convince that we do not need food gmo labeled. What will you do now to ensure yes of 37 wins?
