I hope you will take some time to read the following message and link. Yes, it is a call for an eye opening if you haven’t been aware of the technology that has been developed by seed and chemical corporations these last few decades. Many of us cover our moral eyes to these disastrous applications as they have made our ways of life so simple and easy. Living for just today has a big price to pay.
Been there, done that!
For industrial-chemical-genetically-modified agribusiness, this has been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad, butt-kick summer. Maximally so.
The whole, gargantuan, super-efficient, hyper-technical, chemical-dependent agriborg has been repeatedly whacked upside the head by reality.

That summons to agricultural sanity is the call of the land. The call is plain: to actively transform and retrofit existing systems to agroecological enterprises that will heal rather than harm the land and the people. This ideal, given eloquent expression in the Seventh Generation teaching which is native to North America, is a critical thread in the rising network of community farm and food initiatives. Many of the emerging agroecological initiatives offer models that could be of high service for the wholesale agriculture transformation which is now imperative.
Here’s a roundup of gut-wrenching, paradigm-annihilating Ag news just for the months of summer 2015: …
