Howard Vlieger East Coast 2015 Jan/Feb Tour

Howard will be presenting on the effects of GMO crops and glyphosate use in humans, animals and soils at these meetings. Some of the material will be farmer centric and some will be consumer centric, depending on the audience.

Here is a short biography about Howard for those of you who want to refresh your memory about him or use it to explain these events to your friends and interested neighbors. All of these events, save the one to the students at Chatham (and perhaps Del Valley ??) are public events.

I've got links to the event or the information for the event below.

Please feel free to spread this information to your colleagues, friends, fellow farmers, customers, neighbors.... who might be interested in hearing about the discussion Howard has to offer.

If you have specific questions about things other than event logistics, please get back with me.

Registration and RSVP for these events should be done directly with the host, unless indicated otherwise.
That will help them with their planning, seating and food.

This is a great opportunity for Howard to see a lot of PA - and to meet some exceptional and interesting farmers and folks who support the farming community in PA. And it's also a great chance for people to spend some time listening to Howard, hearing what he has to offer, and having him answer questions you might have.

Deep down Howard is really a soil guy... and came to working with glyphosate and GMO crops after he'd been digging in the soil for a couple of decades.  As such, he can talk practical soil stuff, working with GMO crop and glyphosate to mitigate the effects of those things (like needing special additional nutrients and microbiology because of the chelation effects on plants and microbial life), human and animal health issues..... (he's the fellow who designed the pig study where hogs were fed GMO and non GMO feeds for their lifetimes.) – Dr. Susan Beal
