    I know the conference is about homesteading and growing local, but genetically modified organisms(GMO) and chemicals are definitely an issue and have been present in the past. Is there any plan or track in this year’s conference that addresses this? I mean, such as, just saying I’m sustainable is no longer enough. How do you ensure customers that you don’t have GMOs if you aren’t organic?
