GE Alfalfa Statement and Links

Regarding USDA decision to fully deregulate GE Alfalfa:Tidal Creek Co-op and the National Cooperative Grocers Association

are aware of, and disappointed in, the decision made by the USDA.

We encourage you to make your voice heard by contacting your legislators.

We continue to fight for organics and believe that now, more than ever,

is the time to support organics.
