At around 5:00 into this film, Christian of Ice Age Farmer makes a remarkable observation about saving seeds:

When you grow a crop from seed on your own land and then save seeds from the crop for next year, those seeds that experienced year one on your land are gifted with add-on genetic information about what the next crop needs to know about your growing conditions in order to survive.

The name for that is epigenetics, which we've discussed elsewhere on Town Hall, but not so much in context of plants.  The result is your own landrace of that particular species.

That is exactly something people should be very aware of, in case Monsanto or another of the gene giants tries to stake a claim on something some one is growing, and claims it's theirs.

Each time you grow it on your land, the epigenetics of it continues to change from its original state, more evidence on your side that the overall genetic complement, especially the epigenetics, are unique and different from that of any GM crop.

That's a good rationale against corporate patenting of seeds Ilinda!

Radio Free Earth: Community Preparedness and Two Way Radios

BUY NOW

In a post-global disaster world, predators and tyrants will have the best two-way radios, and they'll use them to surveil you at a comfortable distance.

What will you have? Signal flares and red bandannas?

If so, when you least expect it, the predators and tyrants will come to take a spoil and they will torture, rape, and kill without mercy.

This is why Radio Free Earth authors Marshall Masters and Duane W. Brayton have an urgent message for everyone with a serious interest in preparedness. That being, analog RF (radio frequency) is the heartbeat of freedom. Accept no substitutes.

Watch our free videos to learn how to stay safe and free with an affordable strategy for two way communication, both near and far.
