Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners—Teaching Generations to Love Mother Earth
Organic Consumers - 4/16/2014.
By Charlotte Warren - MOFGA led the charge to pass a GMO labeling law in Maine. In fact, they started off this year in the office of Maine’s Governor, Republican Paul LePage. They were there to deliver hundreds of postcards encouraging him to sign the bill previously passed by Maine’s legislature with near unanimous votes. Governor LePage signed the bill the next day, and Maine became the second state in the country to adopt labeling requirements for foods derived from genetically modified crops and animals. Well done, MOFGA!
