Then along comes a company like Monsanto (insert Dearth Vader music here), I started reading about this company 12 years ago when we started to build our first veg garden, the shear lack of humility in the face of nature displayed by the one company astounded me and in the last 12 years they only seem to have gotten worse. The blatant distribution of chemicals in weed killers which are carcinogenic, arbitrarily advocated that people should wholesale exterminate all insect life, the good and bad for larger crop production and worse of all the patenting of seeds meaning that farmers can not collect seeds from one years crops to grow next years, something we as a species have been doing for thousands of years. It makes your bloody boil! I have always been an organic gardener, I have never liked the idea of using chemicals on something I planned to put on my plate and Im bloody glad this is a path I never ventured down.
I would highly recommend everyone see this little film, weather you grown your own or not, we should all be aware of what we put into our environment and our bodies.
