On Saturday, Sept. 21, GreenStar Community Projects (GSCP), the non-profit affiliate of GreenStar Cooperative Market, will host their third annual Food Justice Summit at Southside Community Center, 305 S. Plain St., in Ithaca.
The summit was conceived as a one-day event designed to bring our community together and foster unity and equality in our food system. The summit has brought food justice speakers such as Malik Yakini (in 2011) and Charity Hicks (in 2012); this year we will be bringing Majora Carter, the Peabody Award-winning urban revitalization strategist from the Bronx, NYC, to speak on her experience in uplifting her community. This year will also feature musical performances by Ki-Tun, Mbusi, and headliners The Blind Spots.

You think I'm mad. Perhaps I am. But listen, Henry Frankenstein. While you were digging in your graves, piecing together dead tissues, I, my dear pupil, went for my material to the source of life. I grew my creatures, like cultures, grew them as nature does, from seed!
— Doctor Septimus Pretorius, from The Bride of Frankenstein
Ah, the Frankensteins ... it seems that whatever they create turns out badly. Whether it be Victor's creature in the book, or Henry's in the film, or his later attempt at a bride. Even his son Wolf has disastrous results with his experiments.
And even though the creature has no name, so powerful was the evil and so great the wanton destruction caused by the House of Frankenstein that we have come to use the name for the monster itself.
It seems the Frankensteins had not one, but two fatal flaws: hubris, the usurping of god-like power, and unaccountability, the failure to take responsibility for their creation after endowing it with life.
Is there such a house at work in the world today? I'm afraid there is ... the house of Monsanto.
