The forum takes place at 6:30 p.m. at the First Universalist Church of Pittsfield.
“Corporate Consolidation in Your Backyard” will help you negotiate your way through the maze of corporate changes that affect what you grow, eat, and can call your own. Kavanya will define and discuss GMOs, terminator technology, utility patents, plant patents, and licensing agreements. You will hear the latest in the patent lawsuit against Monsanto. And she’ll end with a few “sprouts of hope” on this changing landscape of the commons.
