I would like to suggest a method I have taken to combat the growing influence of Monsanto in the food market.
Grow and buy only heirloom seeds. That way after your first purchase you can keep harvesting seeds year after year. I know their sphere of influence
is much larger and I am maybe takening lets say about $500 dollars out of their pocket in a year that way. But I have also cut back on eating out in
restraunts to a level that could be considered very seldom.
Look its really not that hard, look into square foot gardening or the practices of permaculture and you will start to find that gardening doesn't
have to be hard tedious work and almost take care of itself. If we stop buying their food and get others to do the same we can start to negate the
influence they have gained. I have found that it is as easy as sharing some home grown tomatos in some cases to get someone started in their own
As far as big land farmers go, we can try to talk to them and try and volunteer to work for them if they will start going back to the none GM seeds.
It is a long road we will have to walk but it will be worth it and more effective than just talking about it. Oh and I have considered a top bar
beehive but have to figure somewhere other than my house since a neighbor I like has an alergic reaction to bee stings that is potentially deadly and
would hate to feel responsible for that accident.
Peace and get up and go plant a seed, maybe we can compare harvest.
