As Farm Wars’ readers know, I do not advertise anything for personal profit. I chose to become an affiliate with Heirloom Organics in order to provide good quality, organic Heirloom seeds to my readers, and use any proceeds to keep the site running without anyone spending a penny more for their purchase to do so, making it easy to stock up on organic Heirloom seeds and support Farm Wars at the same time. Just pick your seeds, add them to the shopping cart, and the 30% discount will be calculated. This sale ends on July 31!
GM agriculture is failing on all counts while hazards to health and the environment are coming to light. Opposition to GMOs is gaining momentum worldwide but the expansionist GM corporate agenda continues undiminished. GM agriculture is a recipe for disaster as this report will make clear. It is also standing in the way of the shift to sustainable agriculture already taking place in local communities all over the world that can truly enable people to feed themselves in times of climate change. Take action now to ban environmental releases of GMOs, locally in communities, villages, towns, municipalities, regions, as well as nationally and globally. We the people need to reclaim our food and seed sovereignty from the corporate empire before they destroy our food and farming irreversibly.
