Locals Supporting Locals- Okanagan/West boundary Chapters
Re:March Against Monsanto Penticton 2017
We at Locals Supporting Locals are very proud to have organized Penticton’s Marches Against Monsanto for the past 4 years. We would like to thank Tami Canal and Brent Hill for all their hard work and our shared commitment to clean, natural foods.
Due to recent understandings we will no longer be organising the march. We have decided that we would like to spend our time and resources working towards solutions, not protesting the problem.
A shift is happening.
People are walking up and are aware of the problems we face now more than ever. Our place in this fight is at a local level. Supporting local community farmers, producers and providers.
We have narrowed our focus. Not just promoting a healthy lifestyle, but to continue building a network of like minded people who are committed to action and real change. We have started a group Meeting of the Minds – Local Dialogue on Global Issues – Okanagan/Boundary) and host monthly meet ups to discuss these solutions. Please feel free to join our Fb group page and attend our Meeting of the Minds.
We want a Natural Okanagan. We have started the web page for it naturalokanagan.ca but still needs a lot of work so if you have skills you wish to offer to help form this group please contact us.
For those of you who want to participate in this year’s march there is one being held in Kelowna on Saturday. March Against Monsanto Kelowna 11am Parkinson Rec. BEE THERE.
Thank you again for your support!
