Bill that could threaten gardeners

sandybeach(z9 CA)April 14, 2010

Home gardeners should take an interest in this.

I'm not saying to vote for or against, just that we should all be aware.

It's H.R. 857. It's a bill that is said to be linked to Monsanto (large agriculture company) that could outlaw home gardens (posing as a food safety bill). Here are two links:

From the 7th generation link it says that Michael Taylor former vp of public policy at Monsanto is now the new senior adviser of the FDA.

I normally don't pay attention to stuff like this, but I don't want to be told what I can and what I cannot do on my land.
