Asheville's 17th Organicfest Celebration
Sunday, August 26, 2018 in Pack Square Park
We're super excited to be presenting and celebrating Asheville's 17th Organicfest celebration. Our first event was the "Don't Be Fooled by Genetically Engineered Foods" on April Fools' Day in 2000. We walked the streets of downtown Asheville protesting the genetic engineering of our food. Our small non-profit, "Pure Food Partners" was just about 7 weeks old. Our mission at that time was to educated our community about the genetic engineering of food and gathering signatures on petitions to get label GMO foods.
