I have to say that I watched the films and read the articles and links listed below. The more I read and learn about farming techniques harming our environment the more outraged I feel. I have found a site in Sweden that gives you products to boycott here a few months ago. Below gives you another boycott list to follow. It is for our own health and the health of our planet that I commit to learning even more on these subjects and being even more proactive in my purchases in the future.
I would like to help by passing on the information for others to read and make their own decisions on this subject. I do not want to rant and rave and stand on a soap box. I want to present information, facts and well written articles to substantiate what I believe. I hope that you find this as interesting as I have and that some of you will be as moved to take action. We try to live by example. When we moved into this area, there was only one family in our immediate area that had a vegetable garden. This year was the first time we spoke to them about gardening and asked them where they bought their heirlooms seeds. We shared some information.
This summer two of our close neighbors and one of their relatives (who visits here every summer) have started their own vegetable patch. We have given vegetables,pickles and even plants to those three families from our garden every year and now they are planting their own small vegetable patches. I hope that we inspired them to try growing some vegetables this year for themselves. We as people can make a difference in the world, if we just try.
