GMO OMG Documentary Film at Yavapai Community College

The premier showing of ‘GMO OMG’, a new documentary by filmmaker Jeremy Seifert, will be hosted by GMO-Free Prescott and Yavapai College Community Education on Wednesday, February 26, at 7 PM. The film will be shown at the Yavapai College Center for the Performing Arts, 1100 E. Sheldon St. in Prescott.

DarkSide

Advance tickets are available by calling 928-717-7755.

The cost is $8.00; free admission for children under 18 who are accompanied by their parent.

‘GMO OMG’ is a family film in which a concerned father searches for answers to: How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected. Along the way we gain insight into a question that is of growing concern to citizens the world over: what’s on your plate?

The film will be followed by and a Q & A session.

GMO-Prescott is a partner of Sustainable Arizona, a 501(3)(c) nonprofit and is committed to promoting grassroots efforts that encourage informed and nourishing food options and choices.

Tierra Wild Outdoor Club

I just received an email about an outdoor club opportunity for homeschoolers. This looks like a great club for any style of homeschoolers to participate in. I just emailed Nathan to ask for more information about ages he can accommodate with the Skyview group and the cost, so I will update this post when I find out.

Update:

Tierra Wild will organize club outings every Friday, starting February 21, 2014. Participants will depart from Skyview at 8:00 am and return at 3:00 pm. Each outing costs $50 if you pre register, $60 if you register the day of. Participants whose parent/guardian volunteers for a particular event may be eligible for a 15% discount on that outing. Email Nathan for a list of activities, ranging from shelter building and rappelling at Watson Lake to kayaking at Lynx Lake and Goldwater.

Hello,

My name is Nathan Threlkeld and I represent Tierra Wild, a small family owned company in Prescott. Our company is an education based non profit, and our small staff are all highly trained and certified, and confident working with children in an educational setting.  We are currently running an outdoor club primarily for Skyview school every Friday. Skyview has Fridays off so this works well. I would like to extend the opportunity to the homeschoolers in the area. In short we take kids out on various outdoor adventures around Prescott/ Northern Arizona while emphasizing leadership development, confidence development, and environmental awareness. Spots on our bus are limited but we have the staff and equipment to accommodate many more participants if parents are willing to drive. We don’t need to expand our program, but I am passionate about sharing my love for the outdoors with children, and was homeschooled myself from 1st grade through high school. I would be excited to work with the homeschool families. If outdoor club isn’t a good fit we can also offer field trips or other outings meet state standards.
