I just received an email from a friend who is a member of the Winter Cache Project.
They call it the bill that to outlaw organic farming (HR 875).
The bill came in and was handled in a stealth manner.
The main backer is Monsanto, a G.M.O. and chemical giant corporation. Also Cargill, ADM and some 35 other related agri giants are involved.
The bill reguire's organic farmers to use specific fertilizers and poisonos sprays dictated by the newly formed agency to " make sure there is no danger to the public food supply".
This also includes the backyard grower with no intention to sale.
If this passe then NO MORE heirloom clean seed only Monsanto G.M.O. seeds with no unexpected diseases.
They recommend to go to www.house.gov/writerep .
Spread the word, start emailing your friends.
