WALKING ACROSS AMERICA
for GMO Labeling
Taylor Lancaster is
For the last 20 years, Taylor has been an avid backpacker, which has taken him on many excursions.
Taylor's interest in Food Integrity began when he lived and worked in New Zealand as an organic farmer in 2007. There, he learned first-hand about the benefits of organic and sustainable farming and living.
In the summer and fall of 2012 Taylor lived at a Zen Monastery in Oregon. As part of his training, he worked in the organic garden and orchard. In silence, he experienced what it means to live by action. This frame of mind enabled him to see the benefits of walking across America in support of something bigger than himself.
When Taylor returns from this journey, he will resume his work as a licensed massage therapist. In living a purposeful life, Taylor focuses on service to others as part of his path toward spiritual growth.

Taylor's walk began in Santa Monica, CA on January 5, 2015, and after nine long months of trekking through 9 states, he will complete his journey in Washington DC in early October, 2015.
