Oct. 7: Calabash-A Festival of Gourds, Arts and Gardens at Food for Thought

Posted by Leilani Clark on Wed, Oct 3, 2012 at 2:38 PM

In the words of the McSweeney’s column by Colin Nissan, it’s decorative gourd season, motherfuckers! It’s time to get out those multicolored leaves and fill the house with mutant squash. It’s time to perform an all-gourd reenactment of an episode of Different Strokes. It’s time to jam a wicker basket with an insanely ornate assortment of shellacked vegetables. It’s time to make that that shit look so seasonal. But it’s also time to get serious and go see some actual gourd art, all to benefit Food for Thought, the HIV/AIDS food bank. Something tells me Colin Nissan will not be a guest speaker when Calabash: A Festival of Gourds, Art and Gardens gets underway on Sunday, Oct. 7, at Food for Thought. 6550 Railroad Ave., Forestville. 1pm. $45—$50. 707.887.1647.

Please note that yellow crookneck squash is now being genetically modified by having different species genes from bacteria and virus inserted into its DNA.

That means in addition to corn, sugar beets, soybeans and canola and all the thousands of products made from them eating this squash can laterally transfer the bioengineered genes into your stomach flora and make them continuing producing the pesticide in your stomach.

Oh well, at least the insects and worms will die in your belly. Of course your children can get allergies, autism, leaky gut syndrome and other autoimmune conditions from this. You may get prostate and breast cancer and other conditions like fatique and premature aging. It's a risky gamble with you winning nothing but supposedly pest free food and the house winning every time in the extra expenses to grow these crops and as a bonus, the money from selling the special herbicide that the plants can resist and are drenched with.

It would be nice if genetically modified foods were labeled.
Vote Yes on Prop 37 to label them.


This youtube video, the 84 minute version, will educate about this.
