Love comes in many shapes and sizes. Whether you have a sweetheart or not, embrace the wonders of nature and share your love and compassion this Valentine’s Day with a lonely neighbor, a retired veteran, a homeless person, or a shelter pet.
Volunteer your time at an old-age home, wash someone’s car or bring their trash cans in, deliver some cookies, write a letter to a service man or woman, give a hug, share a good cry, smile at a stranger … but most of all, take a deep breath and breathe in life!!
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

Growcology is hosting a training class today so people can go out and collect signatures for the “Label GMOs statewide ballot initiative”. A Riverside ballot initiative coordinator will be there to answer any questions. Afterwards, there will be a screening of the movie “The Future of Food”. For more information on the Label GMOs campaign, please visit LabelGMOs.org.
GMO = Genetically Modified Organisms. No matter who you are or where you’re from, you have the right to know what’s in your food. Currently, food companies are not required to label foods that contain Gentically Modified Organisms (GMOs). 80% of foods in U.S. grocery stores are made with GMO ingredients. 90% of U.S. consumers want GMO labeling.
The Committee for the Right to Know is a grassroots coalition of consumer, public health, environmental organizations, and food companies in California that is seeking the labeling of genetically engineered foods (GMOs).
On November 9, 2011, the coalition submitted the “California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act” to the State Attorney General for title and summary, prior to circulation as an initiative measure for the November 2012 election.
What: Label GMOs signature gathering training
When: TODAY, Saturday February 11 from 2:00-5:00 p.m.
Location: Growcology, 3569 Crowell Ave, Riverside (entrance is not on Crowell Ave, but via dirt alley off of Helena or Diana, which is visible from Google Maps).
Signature collection is allowed to start February 18th, and we need 800,000 signatures by mid-April in order to put this on the ballot for November 2012.
Today’s event is FREE and no reservations are required. Please try to attend! It’s a huge step towards providing you the food you want! Take charge of your health!
