On March 24 from 1 to 5pm, The Institute of Sustainable Nutrition (TIOSN) is grateful for the unique opportunity to bring two world-class research scientists to the community to present information about the effects of Roundup and its active ingredient, glyphosate. Dr. Don M. Huber is a professor emeritus of plant pathology for Purdue University and Dr. Stephanie Seneff is a research scientist for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. They will present information about the effects of glyphosate on soil, plant and human health.

Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in the world. Countries worldwide are discussing its detrimental effects on the environment and human health. Many nations have already banned or limited its use in agriculture.

The event will take place at Holcomb Farm in West Granby; a Q&A session will follow the presentations.The fee per person is $15. TIOSN would like to extend a special invitation to farmers. Farmers that register in advance may attend this presentation at no cost.
