To The Daily Sun,
Growing up in New Hampshire I remember seeing many bees and monarchs as I played outside. It was incredible to see them and be aware of their importance in our food system. The past few years I began to notice a sharp decline with them. Have you noticed that our bee and monarch population is declining? This is of great concern to myself. Many species of bees have been listed on the endangered species list. We need bees! Our food supply and environment is being compromised. We need monarchs, too.
Many of us are concerned about the use of glysophate, which has been determined by the World Health Organization as a probable carcinogen. If you are interested in learning about saving the bees and monarchs, promoting organic solutions, organic gardening ideas, raising awareness of the harm of pesticides and neonicotinoids, promoting food and seed sovereignty, protecting our biodiversity for our future seven generations to come, please come to the New Hampshire March Against Monsanto on Saturday, May 20, at 11 a.m. at the City Plaza in Concord, right next to the Farmer's Market.
We will have an educational rally and peaceful walk though downtown Concord. We start out the rally with the great band, Tyler Road. We will have a New Hampshire beekeeper, Amy Antonucci, state Rep. Jim McConnell, Marty Mitchener, Ph.D., ecologist, Laura Wolfner, M.A. Molecular Biologist & M.A. Archaeologist, and Bonnie Wright, from Non-Toxic NH, NH Right to Know GMO. We will have an organic seed swap table featuring high mowing organic seeds and an organic non-GMO food drive collecting non-perishable foods which we will donate to the Mckenna House.
This is part of a worldwide event where millions will march in solidarity. Please join this fun family event and bring your friends.
