I'm so glad to hear that someone anywhere is standing up for real seed integrity. Hopefully they can avoid the biggies suing the pants off of them!

As is becoming more recognised throughout the world, many old varieties of plants actually contain more vitamins and minerals than newer varieties (never mind the glyphosate-ridden GMOs) - hooray for these people!

This is wonderful. It would be great if this went "viral" though all native American tribes as well as other communities. I'm thrilled that they are saving and using heirloom seeds as they are getting harder to find.

These actions we must do if we expect to survive this terrifying age.

The terrorists are now assaulting the nations as predicted.

Meanwhile we must survive for the sake of our children.

Why must the newly reincarnated suffer for what they began?

Now, they are given an opportunity to be Heroes of Earth.

May it be so.

A bright light. Thank you Nancy.
We can support exchanges of heritage seeds right here along with purchasing our food directly from hamily owned and operated farms. This is all good.
