Clo sing for ‘NATURE’S CALLING’/Miracle Mile Art Walk

\n

\n

POLLUTION. PESTICIDES. GMO’S….all are wreaking havoc on the environme nt.

\n

\n

We have become so removed from the very thing that sustains us …Na ture. Nature feeds our bodies and its innate beauty nourishes our soul.

Nature is screaming for help. Genetically modified seeds are laced with disease-resistant chemicals that may be toxic to the environmen t at large. This upsets the balance of nature in ways we can't yet comprehend.

\n

Plant an organic garden or assist a friend that has one.

\n

Suppo rt organic farming.
