Happy Tonics Mission. . . provide sanctuary for the monarch butterfly

Happy Tonics is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) environmental education and conservation public charity. Our purpose is to promote organic gardening and open pollination for biodiversity. The organization is dedicated to teaching about the risks of invasive species and genetic engineering to the food supply, and their impact on the environment, other species, indigenous and native crops, and health.

We provide educational lectures, films, and CD photo presentations on the plight of the monarch butterfly and food safety issues. We offer milkweed seed to promote the planting of native milkweed in order to provide food for the monarch. Milkweed is the host plant, and the insect is dependent upon this plant for its survival.

Volunteer opportunities: We need volunteers with high tech skills to help our Web master with listing events on Web site calendars; maintain an online store and develop a blog. To learn more, contact Mary Ellen at happytonics@centurytel.net
