Just a shame they have to encounter GMOs...along with the rest of society. What a mess via human greed and stupidity.

Not much left for us despoil on this beat up old planet. Maybe some day in the future we will as humans waken to a new reality, doubtful, but I guess we can remain hopeful.

Please!

If you can plant some bee-friendly crops/flowers....PLEASE DO SO!

Think twice & then once again about using pesticides!
