Organic Mela on 12th and 13th September 2009 at MHS Hall, Lalbagh,

Greetings from MY Right to Safe Food

Following the South Asian Countries (SAC) - Organic Federation Association of India (OFAI) seminar on 10th and 11th Sept at GKVK on organic advanced techniques, we decided to extend this to consumers by creating an " Organic Mela" , at a central location Lalbagh. This is an awareness programme to understand the rich crop diversity and heritage of our country. Connecting producers to consumers. Organic food and health.

For those interested in training and introduction to organic farming and safe food, please find the schedule below. On the 13th Sept between 03.15 pm – 04.00 pm I will be delighted to share with you "Wonder world of Vegetables".

An opportunity for all to enrich themselves.....find out what biodiversity we will be losing out on, should GM foods be allowed entry.

Please extend this invite below to all your friends and family.

Look forward to seeing you all there.....

In solidarity
