Also come and hear about  the Hamilton Timebank which will be starting in Hamilton soon. For anyone involved in voluntary work this is a great initiative to value the work you do, have others do lovely things for you as well, and generally improve social community networks - make Hamilton a better place to live.

Thursday 9 August
GE Debate

12.30pm
Student Centre (Level 1, opposite Bennetts) WSU

NB this is in addition to the evening event at the Trade Union centre which we advertised in our 3/08/2012 newsletter.

The Green Party have organised a GE tour involving taking two Australian farmers, (Julie Newman and Bob Mackley), around New Zealand to talk with people about their experiences of the GE crops grown in their regions.

They will share their findings on the effects the release of GE crops have had on their communities and businesses. Julie and Bob will also cover the issues of liability and co-existence for organic and non-GM farmers.
