Solutions / Support Organic, Non-GMO Farming
Join the Movement to Ban GMO Farming and Foods
Genetically Modified Foods threaten our health, the environment, and our ability to grow our own food. You can challenge GMO farming practices by joining Non-GMO movements and supporting organic, local farmers.
- Sign Up for Critical Mass Actions to create a GMO Free Zone with a critical mass of others; protest at the USDA and FDA offices to label and ultimately ban GMO products; and/or protest at Monsanto headquarters. You can tell us what actions interest you most by filling out the Critical Mass survey here.
Support Organizations That are Working to Protect People and the Environment from Unsafe GMO Practices
- The Center for Food Safety works to “protect human health and the environment by curbing the proliferation of harmful food production technologies and by promoting organic and other forms of sustainable agriculture.”
- Greenpeace has been campaigning against GMOs since 1995. They got the Biosafety Protocol adopted in Montreal, Canada and are working to get countries to ban GMOs altogether.

Support Organic Farmers and Eat Organic Food as Much as Possible
- Shop at Your Local Farmers Market - Farmers markets often sell food from small, local, organic farms and are fun, lively events. Find a farmers market near you.
