Help oppose the planting of experimental GM wheat

Please donate on the form below to help GM Freeze keep voicing your concerns about open releases of experimental GMOs

GM developers have applied for permission to plant highly experimental GM wheat in a field near St Albans. Field trials always carry a risk of escape and wheat is a staple food in the UK so we shouldn’t be taking any risks.

Thanks to the generosity of GM Freeze supporters we are working hard to stop this trial being nodded through. We are analysing and responding to the fine technical details while supporting hundreds of people to make their feelings known.

A full trial response costs around £2,500 and GM Freeze is run on a shoestring. We receive grants for some work but that has to be planned well in advance, whereas trial applications like these crop up without notice and need a swift response.

If no donation form appears above or if you prefer to pay in another way, you can send a cheque (payable to GM Freeze) to: GM Freeze, Open Space Cooperative, 41 Old Birley Street, Hulme, Manchester, M15 5RF or contact us on 0845 217 8992 or info[at] for details of how to pay into our bank account.
