thanks for planting ORGANIC! what a great way to spread the message!
Are you gonna send some seedlings to President Obama and Secretary of Ag Tom Vilsack?
Make sure they know that Keep the Beet approves of organic alfalfa to feed animals with, rather than Monsanto's newly approved-by-the-USDA Round-up Ready GE alfalfa.
Thanks for all of the work you do on behalf of Mother Earth!
From my blog: The USDA, under the auspices of Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, an Obama appointee, approved Monsanto's GE alfalfa for commercial use. We must take action by contacting the White House and President Obama to STOP this crop from being planted in the spring, when it will begin contaminating other crops, including organic alfalfa.
We must also make our voices heard for Truth-in-Labeling: The OCA states that "85-95% of American consumers want mandatory labels on GMO foods. Why? So that we can avoid buying them." If we know what's in our food, avoid buying those with GMO's, then the GMO industry will dry up, as it has in Europe where mandatory labeling has been in effect; "... in the EU there are almost no GMO crops under cultivation, nor GM consumer food products on supermarket shelves. And why is this? Because under EU law, all foods containing GMOs or GMO ingredients must be labeled."
