Right to Know G.R.

I support the education of GMO's for a number of reasons ~ but the single, most important reason is for the health of my children and the safety and preservation of the environment they will grow up in and inherit from us.

knowledge from many people and places along a very delicious journey.

Beyond the Great Lakes, Lisa’s interest in ethnobotany and herbal
medicine has taken her across the United States and into the Yucatan,
mainland Mexico, Nicaragua, and Brazil to study plants, people,

When she is not in her own gardens or kitchen, Lisa can be found in
the fields and forests, leading foraging plant walks and teaching
classes on edible and medicinal wild plants. She forages for her own
family, herbal apothecary and community herbalism practice with her

Thank you Tabitha for sharing this very important information! When our babies are sick, we react out of fear and listen to the doctor because we think he/she knows best, but often we know best as moms and dads and our gut is telling us something different. I have learned to listen to myself and my gut … If I have questions I seek answers myself. Most doctors feed meds not nourish with foods or finding out what kind of toxins / poisons are in our food and on our plates!

What are our other MI area leaders thoughts and ideas for their first meeting?

I work in the financial services industry as a licensed Portfolio Associate. I am married with two kids and I look forward to educating my community about the dangers associated with GMO's.
