noon to 5pm

(PAST EVENT: Please signup to be notified of future events!)

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Two decades ago, while the general public was focused on other food topics, scientists presented GMO and gut biome research to near-empty rooms. How things have changed. Be in the 2017 version of that same room where you will hear insights about food that the general public will not hear about for many years. Be with others who share a hunger for the truth about our food.
