Here we go again.
If you would like to participate in the public process of County GMO policy please read on. We need several volunteers/audience participants who could donate speaking time (meaning you simply need to be in attendance and don’t have to speak/present if you don’t want to) which allows us to present our GMO policy recommendations and Open Space research.
If you’d like to donate speaking time, please email Mary to indicate your interest and help coordinate our efforts. Thanks!
The Boulder County Commissioners will consider public input on whether to continue or change the current approval for the use of GMO corn and sugar beets, and associated chemical pesticides, on open space agricultural land.
