Today on Lunch with Louden, Debilyn Molineaux interviews Chris Hardy of Village Farm who is concerned about the impact of Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) seed farms located nearby.  We’ll explore the question of why it is that Chris’ efforts to protect Jackson County, OR from the impacts of GMOs have met with resistance from local elected officials, and, we’ll find out what he’s doing about it.

We'll also interview healthy food advocate Mary Closson who created and promoted the “Down to Earth Sustainability Speaker Series” in Wilsonville, OR, about local and sustainable food. Mary will enlighten us about:
  1. Local food processing
  2. Farmer’s markets with vouchers for kids
  3. Organic farming to supply local stores and restaurants
Mary’s program is a template that could be duplicated in your community, and in many others wishing to increase their use of locally grown, healthy foods.
