Who controls the future of your food?

GMO OMG explores the systematic corporate takeover and potential loss of humanity’s most precious and ancient inheritance: seeds. Director Jeremy Seifert investigates how loss of seed diversity and corresponding laboratory assisted genetic alteration of food affects his young children, the health of our planet, and freedom of choice everywhere. GMO OMG follows one family’s struggle to live and eat without participating in an unhealthy, unjust, and destructive food system. In GMO OMG, the encroaching darkness of unknown health and environmental risks, chemical toxins, and food monopoly meets with the light of a growing global movement to take back what we have lost. Has the global food system been irrevocably hijacked? Is there still time to reclaim its purity, protect biodiversity and save ourselves?

Join us as we explore these important questions and discuss what we can do to take back a piece of food democracy here in Massachusetts by passing legislation that would require the labeling of all genetically engineered seeds and food ingredients.

Event Hosted by Mass. GMO labeling champions:

Representative Todd Smola (R- Palmer)
Rep. Ellen Story (D- Amherst)
Deirdre Cummings (MASSPIRG)
Dean Cycon (Dean’s Beans Organic Coffee)
Pat Fiero (MoveOn.org)
Jack Kittredge, (NOFA/Mass)

More about the Holistic Moms Network:

The Holistic Moms Network is a rapidly growing national non-profit organization connecting moms who are passionate about holistic health and green living.  “Through monthly meetings our local chapters bring parents together in a non-judgmental environment that honors their lifestyle and parenting choices,” says the group’s Executive Director Dr. Nancy Massotto. “For new parents who choose to raise their children holistically, having the support of like-minded parents is critical,” she says. The Holistic Moms Network encourages new moms to trust their instincts, to parent from the heart, and to educate themselves about the pros and cons of all healthcare options.  Through a dynamic e-mail discussion loop, members of the group share life-changing information and advice on a variety of topics including pregnancy, breastfeeding, natural childbirth, positive discipline, alternative medicine, and all aspects of green living.

The organization, which was founded in New Jersey in 2003, currently has more than 120 chapters across the United States.  “A majority of today’s moms say that pregnancy inspired a shift to green living, and three quarters of Americans seek out some form of alternative medicine,” says Massotto, “so we’re seeing a surge of interest in our organization.”

Moms, dads, grandparents, partners, and other caregivers are all welcome to join.  The Boston Back Bay Chapter will be meeting on the second Tuesday of each month, from 7:00pm – 9:00pm beginning in October and welcomes volunteer guest speakers on a variety of holistic lifestyle topics.  You’ll receive an OMBE Eco-Beauty Bar gift basket when you sign-up on or before September 21st.
