Whether you’re skeptical about the excessive use of Monsanto’s controversial pesticide, Roundup; outraged over the company’s history of suing farmers that have either saved seeds or been victim to crop drift from nearby farms growing genetically modified seeds that Monsanto holds patents on; or perhaps you’re just not convinced that enough evidence exists to support the ubiquity with which genetically modified foods proliferate in this country—whatever your reason—you can avoid funding Monsanto by steering clear of the following Seminis seeds. Opt instead for heirlooms and seeds from suppliers that have signed the Safe Seed Pledge. Then, save your own.

I am still in shock sometimes when we are in Home Depot and I see people buying RoundUp. Knowing they are spraying something that is going into OUR creeks and the Sound just breaks my heart. Let alone knowing how it effects our bees and other pollinators. Best way to go is with local, organic seeds. We are so lucky with the abundance available to us, planted a bunch of Swiss Chard the other night, been on quite the chard kick lately.

I agree wholeheartedly. I often ask my local Home Depot to remove this stuff from the shelves. I am ignored. Luckily, I have many small nurseries nearby where I can get uncompromised seeds and plants. They sell natural insecticides at a fraction of what Home Depot or Lowe’s sells the for, too. So that’s a nice bonus.
