The Pros and Cons of GMO Labeling: Panel Event

Wednesday, October 1st starting at 7:00 PM and ending at 8:30 PM EDT.

This food policy discussion will navigate the controversial pros & cons of labeling products containing genetically modified organisms (GMO) in a thought-provoking and challenging way. Moderated by Kirk Schroder, Ellwood’s own Food Advocate, this distinguished panel of community and business leaders will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of GMO food product labeling.

As a kick-off to non-GMO month and amidst increasing attention as states consider their own GMO-labeling policies, we invite you to experience the conversation first-hand in this timely and relevant dialogue. Regardless of your beliefs, knowledge of both positions will enable you to more strongly support your opinion and incite change in your community. We hope this discussion does just that!

The Pros and Cons of GMO Labeling: Panel Event is a free event.


Ellwood Thompson's Community Room 4 N. Thompson Street Richmond, VA 23221


The Memorial Foundation for Children Teaching Gallery, located in the MWV Art Education Center, has been transformed into an interactive exhibition where visitors can explore daily life in imperial China.
In contrast to the world of the emperor on display in the "Forbidden City". This hands-on exhibition will provide a glimpse into the home of a merchant-class family who lived in the 18th century. Visitors will be able to interact through activities that include writing Chinese characters on a touch screen and designing personal, virtual seals. There will also be opportunities to unroll and view reproduction scrolls, like those featured in Forbidden City and in VMFA’s East Asian collection, or play traditional musical instruments and games. Whether visiting as part of a school group, or a multigenerational family, the Teaching Gallery exhibition will offer visitors of all ages a new perspective on China’s imperial past. Beyond the Walls is a free event.
