Brisbane Local Food

Growing local



GMO = Genetically Modified Organisms, including food.

There is a lot of discussion at the moment about the pros and cons of GM food and it's all a bit confusing figuring out whether it's something that will affect us and our loved ones personally in the future in a positive or negative way.

In the interests of educating ourselves and keeping all information in one easy to access place I have started this group so all articles can be posted in one spot.

Feel free to use "Add a Discussion" to post information you find, pro or con.

Jane - you reminded me about the Patrick Moore interview about Golden Rice. I've added it to Discussions.

Thanks for sharing Vanessa :)

Just throw anything new you find into a new "+ Add a Discussion" (just above the words "Comment Wall"). That way people can discuss individual topics.

You can always add links for your videos on the home page too, for a wider audience than just the GM Group.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
