    Hi Anais, this is crazy! I hope lots of people sit up and take notice. I’ve just written about seed saving on my blog. We should be doing more of it.

    All I can say is “THANK YOU” From a veteran who is dealing with what Monsanto has done to my life personally in Anniston, AL to a current Master Gardener who knows what’s going on within the corporate side of agriculture. How dare they expect me to promote their products after all of this. I’m sad to say on so many levels, that I will have to step down as a MG if they insist I promote Round Up and the rest of their products anymore. I feel completely deceived. Thanks again.

    Rhonda Jean is teaching us all how to save our heritage seeds on her blog, here in Australia. Yes, we all do need to stand up and be counted on this. This is not a change for the better we don’t want or need their dead seeds.

    This might be a good place to put in a plug for two seed companies. Fedco stood up to Monsanto, and no longer carries any seeds owned by them or any of their subsidiaries. They deserve to be supported for their courageous stand. The Little Homestead may not be familiar with Fedco because they are located in Maine and cater specifically to garderners and growers in the colder zones, generally zone 6 and cooler. But they have years of first hand experience, great products and a good deal of moral courage.

    Another seed company, Seed Saver’s Exchange explicity promotes the concepts of seed saving, and of home gardners becoming stewards of various heirloom varieties. They also work with the Slow Food movement to identify rare fruit and vegetable varieties with a significant cultural and culinary significance, in order to promote their preservation. The more gardeners who grow these varietals and save their seeds, the more secure our food and our future.

    Caught the Monsanto info at Down_to_earth, Rhonda Jean’s blog from Australia this AM. First thing I did was go to Change dot gov and leave a message (under Rural) for the Agriculture Secretary elect. This is the time to be very vocal about our concerns. If enough of us contact them, maybe this time we will be heard.
    And while you’re at it check out the down-to-earth blog, it’s worth your time. I have learned a lot there.

    Everyone should be educating themselves and everyone they know about what Monsanto is doing to the farmers all over the world! And now they are attacking the seed cleaners. This is crazy! When will they be sending white collar suits into the home garden? Will we be next?

    Do not support Monsanto and fund their destruction of our seeds. No one should be able to own or control life or nature. Learn to save your seeds and only buy seeds from non-Monsanto sources.

    It doesn’t help to have Monsanto’s buddy as the new Sec of Ag either! We need to reclaim our food and support companies that stand up to Monsanto.

    I am a novice home gardener who is just getting my feet wet with all aspects of growing. I wanted to know if you could point out a website or other resource where I can find a non-Monsanto source for seeds. Sorry if this has already been discussed, but I can’ t seem to find it anywhere. I read this website every day and dream about expanding my growing space and my knowledge about growing my own food. Thank you all for your help and inspiration!

    I, too, posted a comment on change dot gov under Rural. I think the more comments they get, the more visibility this issue will receive.
