Vandana Shiva On GMO Resistance


Dr. Vandana Shiva is a heroine to many people who want purity and simplicity in agriculture, and a lightning rod for controversy because of it. 

Shiva, who is scientist, activist, environmentalist and more, rejects the idea of genetically engineered crops and corporate-patented seeds. 

She visits Ashland this week (Oct. 14) to talk about food security, organic farming and more. 

And we get to spend an hour with her prior to her arrival in town.
