8. I'll gladly second your "FUCK YOU" to Gates.
Edited on Thu Oct-15-09 07:04 PM by scarletwoman
Trapping impoverished farmers into an endless round of buying chemical fertilizers and pesticides and new seeds every planting season is NOT the answer.

Sustainable agricultural practices in harmony with environmental conditions, saving seeds from each harvest to plant next season, planting a variety of food crops rather than monoculture -- there many ways to create successful farming practices that don't rely on indentured servitude to giant agribusiness corporations.

For centuries the Hopi successfully grew corn and other food crops in the freakin' DESERT because they knew how to honor and work with the ecological conditions of where they live.

The Western model of imposing on and opposing Nature instead of working with Nature is a dead end.
