The Organic Elite Surrenders To Monsanto: What Now?

Wow. Little did we know? Whole Foods, Stonyfield Farms, Organic Valley give in to the Monsanto monster and the G-M-O. We have got to save seeds and grow our own. There is no way to hide from the tentacles that reach into every nook and cranny of our lives. What to do? When we say get local, we say get very local: at the back door, at the front door, on the side of the house. Maybe this will inspire folks to simply do what we were always cut out to do as a race: grow our own, forage in the neighborhood, gather the bounty that lies before us in responsible and meaningful ways. From the original article:

“In the wake of a 12-year battle to keep Monsanto’s Genetically Engineered (GE) crops from contaminating the nation’s 25,000 organic farms and ranches, America’s organic consumers and producers are facing betrayal. A self-appointed cabal of the Organic Elite, spearheaded by Whole Foods Market, Organic Valley, and Stonyfield Farm, has decided it’s time to surrender to Monsanto. Top executives from these companies have publicly admitted that they no longer oppose the mass commercialization of GE crops, such as Monsanto’s controversial Roundup Ready alfalfa, and are prepared to sit down and cut a deal for “coexistence” with Monsanto and USDA biotech cheerleader Tom Vilsack.”  Read the rest of the article:
