Companies that sell Monsanto seeds

If you are unaware of Monsanto's influence over food production, I urge you to educate yourself.

Here is an article from Vanity Fair about Monsanto: http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2008/05/monsanto200805

This is Percy Scmmeiser, he is a farmer from Saskatchewan who won a battle against Monsanto when they tried to make him pay a "technology fee" because some of his crops were cross pollinated from Monsanto's GM varieties:

DO NOT BUY MONSANTO SEEDS! They are pre-programed "Terminator" seeds that will only produce one season of plants. If you save the seeds and try to grow food next year, you will not have any sprouts. They are designed to produce sterile seeds, thus forcing farmers/gardeners to be dependent on them for seeds every year.

If a corporation controls the world's seeds, they control the world's food supply.

THINK ABOUT IT.

This spring, when you purchase seeds for your garden, PLEASE make an effort to support those suppliers who choose to carry heirloom seeds. This year I plan to save my seeds at the end of the fall, and I hope you will too. The only way common citizens can impact big business is to stop giving them our money.
