Jessica Harrison, Glenda Lindsay and Fran Murrell co-founded MADGE in 2007 because the Victorian Government’s ban on growing GM canola was to expire in 2008. We met through our concerns about the Genetic Modification of our food.
MADGE wrote a submission and also did a presentation to the Victorian Government GM Review Panel. We showed why growing GM canola would be detrimental to Victoria. We were most disappointed that, despite a revolt by back bench MP’s and widespread public opposition, the moratorium on growing GM canola was allowed to lapse.
We have continued to present information about GM and wider food issues for the public via our website, digest, Facebook page and Twitter feed. We are now an Australia-wide network.
