Sonoma County

GMO Free Sonoma County

Prohibit growing GMOs in Sonoma County, Label GMOs in CA, Educate
Social Media

GMO Free Sonoma County is a grassroots movement comprised of volunteers working to prohibit growing GMOs in Sonoma County and to Label GMOs in CA.  We strive to educate people regarding ZGMO concerns.

Our Current Mission:

To have the Sonoma County Supervisors vote our ordinance into law, which would make it unlawful for any person, partnership, corporation, firm, or entity of any kind to propagate, cultivate, raise, or grow genetically engineered organisms in the county.

The passage of this ordinance would uphold these purposes:

  1. To protect Sonoma County’s native plants, trees, and animals from transgenic contamination by GE organisms;
  2. To defend and promote the economic integrity of organic, conventional, and other markets that are harmed by transgenic contamination by GE organisms;
  3. To protect Sonoma County from increased pesticide use resulting from GE plant propagation and cultivation; and
  4. To preserve the right of Sonoma County residents to reject GE organisms resulting from health-related, moral, or other concerns.                                       

Help us join Marin, Mendocino, Trinity, and Santa Cruz Counties who already have simislar ordinances in place.

If you are a Sonoma County resident, are 18 years old or older, and have not already signed, please visit our website:, and sign our online petition and/ or volunteer. If you represent a business or organization you may also endorse.

Parks Alliance for Sonoma County

Keeping State Parks in Sonoma County open
Social Media

The Parks Alliance was created in response to the State Parks Closure announcements in May 2011 in order to address the current and planned closures of State Parks in Sonoma County. When the closures were announced, the outpouring of support from individuals, nonprofits, businesses and public agencies in the county was astounding.  Our goal is to harness that energy, bringing the community together to keep the parks open and functioning at a sustainable level.
