Seeds of Freedom from The ABN and The Gaia Foundation on Vimeo.
There is an abundance of food to feed the world. This is a fact. 70% of the world is fed by independent farmers with heritage seeds. This little movie, narrated by Jeromy Irons, is poignant in its presentation of what is happening in our food production world today. It is easy for people like Bill Gates to manipulate our thinking, telling us that the world is starving so we must invest in GMO seeds. This is the worst possible solution and it makes me teary-eyed to think that people believe in this garbage science. Agriculture was working perfectly before industrialization came along.
How to preserve our true freedom in food? Buy from your local farmers who are producing crops by traditional farming methods-- with sustainable crops that don't get sprayed with chemicals, but are diverse and rotated to avoid weeds and pests. They take less land, less water and produce less soil erosion and food that is more full of nutrients that make you healthy and happy, as well as the earth.
Thanks to Willow for sharing this video on her blog! I am going to try to find out which candidates support sustainable agriculture and which have joined the ranks with GMO promoting corporations.
