Our Stance on Genetically Engineered (GEs) Plants
We are passionate about this...
How do we change the world? One seed at a time!
A seed is an idea. It’s a living thing. It is a basic right.
A basic right of humanity for thousands of years has been the ability to feed ourselves.
Corporations should not be able to patent life for profit.
Life is sacred and belongs to all that inhabit this earth.
It is symbiotic, interconnected in ways we do not yet understand.
It is wrong to genetically alter life, patent it and sell it.
Life is not yours to genetically manipulate and sell.
It belongs to all who inhabit this world.
I’m reminded of a famous man who lived long ago and already knew these things even though he was labeled a “savage”. He said…
“This we know; the earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected.
All things share the same breath - the beast, the tree, the man... the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
Chief Seattle knew what we are only now “discovering” with science. For example: Did you know that there are over 200 types of bacteria that inhabit the surface of your skin and these same bacteria live in the soil? In fact they give the soil its “earthy sweet smell”! So you literally are a part of the land and the land is a part of you! Ponder that for a while…
I am also happy to have found you, can't wait to get more educacted about the problem with GMOs, was looking for a little corn to plant in a foodplot and was amazed at how hard it was to purchase a simple bag of seed corn.
YES!! That is amazing that your county outlawed GMO's. This needs to happen everywhere, I stumbled here to find some wheatgrass seeds and I am happy to see this section on the site. This means we are on the same page!!
I am so happy to find you! We need to educate more people on this issue and push for legal changes that will stop the greed of big businesses whose only concern is their profit and not the health and well-being of the American people.
GMOs are linked to destroying bee populations in other countries. Let us take a stand for no GMO production in the US and around the world. I personally feel that this kind of manipulation is a direct cause for Alzheimers and Cancer etc.

I share your conviction against GMOs. Keep up the good fight against those (Monsanto et al.) who would destroy us and our planet for profit. Thanks for caring..
