COABC Apple Panel
During Organic week this year, COABC co-sponsored an Apple panel at the Organic Okanagan Festival held at Summerhill Pyramid Winery in Kelowna. The panel included orchardists, both organic and conventional, and a GMO expert. They discussed the repercussions of the potential introduction of the GMO "Arctic Apple".
Thanks to event organizers we are able to share the panel in this 5 part video series.
