The 2014 event will showcase urban chickens, gardens, and beehives in new innovative ways to inspire the Yard to Table approach of creating healthy, fresh, and sustainable local food production back into our yards, homes, lives, and community.

What is a GMO? What happens if I eat it? What can I do if I don't want to eat GMO's? 
Join the Sierra Club-Chickasaw Group for a discussion about manufactured foods and food sovereignty. This program will present very basic information about GMO's, or genetically modified organisms. We will also talk about what this means for our food system. There will be information about GMO labeling as well as healthy alternatives. You have a right to know what is in your food. You have the right to decide what you eat. You CAN have access to healthy foods. Whether it's through education about organic gardening, urban sustainable agriculture, community gardening and sourcing locally, or affecting local food policy or state legislation, it CAN be done and we CAN define our own food system.
Hear about efforts and organizations including GrowMemphis, the Food Advisory Council for Memphis and Shelby County, GMO Free TN, H.O.P.E. (Homeless Organizing for Power & Equality), and more. Light, healthy refreshments will be served.
