Here it is! O.U.R. first podcast, live from O.U.R. Ecovillage! Well… sort of. Live on skype. We were both alive but I guess it isn’t live now that you are hearing it… cause we don’t have a radio station. So, maybe fossilized for you and posted by me two days later. Yes! The cut is pretty raw; I removed any big spaces and other than that, let it be what it was. I see my skills in editing and storyboarding evolving over time (so any suggestions are welcome!) but for now… raw and a bit hacked. Ready?

Episode 1: In which I talk with Dag Falck from Nature’s Path Organics about GMOs and more specifically the potential effect of the proposed GE Apple

Part I – Episode 1 – Part 1
Part II – Episode 1 – Part 2
Part III – Episode 1 – Part 3

Show Notes:

Here are the questions we attempted to address in the Interview, in the order they appear:

  • Could you share a littleabout Nature’s Path and the companies values with respect to food security?
  • Can you tell me a little bit about your position at Nature’s Path?
  • Why have you and natures path chosen to position yourselves against the genetic engineering of food?
  • Are there any sources you would like to site that you use to support your position?
  • In which ways does keeping GMOs out of the food you produce affect Nature’s Path, perhaps using the recent developments around the GE apple in the Okanagan, BC?
  • You mentioned that testing and segregation are things you deal with on a daily basis, can you talk a little bit these process and the difficulties that could arise from the introduction of the GE apple?
  • Can you talk a little bit about the costs and benefits – economically, socially and environmentally – to the organic movement to keep sources of non-gmo & organic food free of GE contamination?
  • Can you offer any encouragement, with respect to these costs, to producers who are considering making the switch to support non-GE and organic growers?
