Seed Savers and Suppliers of: Non hybrid and non GM/GE seeds.
Horror Seed story in Iraq

Genetically Engineered (GE), Genetically Modified (GM) or Transgenic Crops all mean the same thing.
GM crops are mostly chemical dependent and patented.

Put simply, the seeds available from the suppliers listed below are not designed to need a patented chemical to either grow or ripen.  Non hybrid and Non GM/GE seeds are of �open pollination�, which means that they can be pollinated by the bees or the wind.  The plants themselves are not patented either so you will not have to pay royalties to a chemical company for every mouthful of food you grow.  If you grow them commercially the plants are yours and you pay royalties to no one unless of course, your crop is contaminated by GM pollen and then someone like Monsanto tells you that they now own your crop because the pollen is patented.

 Those who push for, or allow GE/GM crops into our country think that tying us to chemical companies is a good thing.  One problem with so-called �GM test crops� is that they are here to contaminate our country with GM pollen and that is a road of no-return.  To see what has already happened to the Canadian farmers with this contaminating pollen go to the Canadian Farmers Union  Sadly, allowing GM pollen into any country is nothing short of biological and agricultural terrorism.

Monsanto's master plan expressed to Arthur Anderson Consulting Group in 1999 was to ensure 100% of all the world's commercial seeds would be genetically modified and patented.  So guess who will then own and control the world's food supply?

Yarra Organics - Petty's Orchard

200 varieties of apples and pears are grown in this orchard.  It is perhaps the largest collection or rare apples and pears in Australia and so one of the most valuable in the world.

This property is running on a shoestring and it appears that not a politician gives a damn about what these people are trying to maintain for the future of our children.

The orchard is in the Shire of Manningham and it seems that not even their own council gives a damn about the genetic heritage held in their own shire.  I don�t know for sure, but i guess they do care about collecting their rates on time.
