In recent news, big players in organics (Whole Food Markets, Stoneyfield Farms, and Organic Valley) are changing their attitude towards genetically engineered foods. In an email announcement, Whole Foods Market is now calling for “true coexistence” with organics and GE foods.
This opens up the potential for massive planting of a chemical and energy-intensive GE crops which could spread its mutant genes and seeds across the nation. This could lead to the contamination of feed to organic animals, poisoning of farm workers, and destruction of our soils.
The best way to guarantee where your food comes form is growing your own! Portland Purple Water is passionate about giving people the tools to live their greatest lives, from growing your own food to capturing your rainwater. We are currently working on a project that could potentially combine the benefits of Aquaponics, Rainwater Harvesting, and solar energy – please stay tuned and check back here for updates.
Until then, check out our upcoming workshop “Aquaponics for All” on February 25th!
