WHAT

This October, Portland joins other cities in Oregon – throughout the Pacific Northwest, across the country, and around the world – to commemorate World Food Day 2013. BEES & SEEDS – World Food Day PDX is a family friendly event to celebrate farmers and producers and the healthy local, organic, and pesticide-free food that sustains us. The event includes a special tribute to our pollinator friends, the bees, because without them we can’t eat. And we’ll salute seed savers who are preserving our biological and cultural heritage

THE RIGHT TO FARM

BEES & SEEDS celebrates small family farms and community-based agriculture that feeds more than 70% of people around the world. The event aims to counter assertions that we need genetically modified crops and industrialized food systems to feed the world. THE RIGHT TO KNOW October is Non-GMO month and BEES & SEEDS supports efforts to label foods that contain GMOs because consumers have an inalienable right to know what they buy and eat. www.beesandseedspdx.com
