Rhonda CrankIt may seem hard to believe, but there are so many people who are unaware of the GMO seed and food issue. I personally know many people who choose not to ask questions or who refuse to put in the time for research. As with any important issue there are always those who accept the propaganda and like the ostrich, bury their head in the proverbial sand.


Since you are reading this and other materials to help educate yourself, you are not one of them. There is a tendency in us to quickly become overwhelmed when learning something new and to simply forget about it. While the amount of information and the different arguments may be scary at first, the truth is simple. Man has once again tried to improve upon what didn't need fixing in the first place.

There is a reason why more than 60 countries in the world have banned them, limited them, and/or required their labeling for use in their borders. Only the U.S. is pushing this seed catastrophe, but that is only because we are corporate run.

Less than 50 years ago, it didn't matter so much where you bought your seeds. If you were avoiding chemically treated seeds, it wasn't hard to find natural seeds, almost everyone sold both. A seed was a seed. Now, saving your own seed from non-GMO plants is one of, if not the, most important decisions a gardener makes.
