Stop GM andGM Freeze
We believe that GM crops are damaging to our health, wildlife and the environment. They are a product that the agrochemical corporations that produced them have identified as a long-term money maker and a potential area for profitable monopolies. GM technology goes hand in hand with enviromentally destructive farming producing nutrient deficient foods. They are also used to stop farmers from saving their own seed and taking away farmers’ traditional and cultural rights.
Open Pollinated Seeds
Open Pollinated Seeds is an initiative to spread awareness about the importance of the natural ways of propagation and regeneration in the plant kingdom. An important feature of it is to high-light the fact that availability of Open Pollinated seeds for food production in Europe has drastically been reduced during the last 30 years. We encourage you to be informed about this key issue which is at the heart of our food culture. The pages on this site are built to give you information and insight, and to connect you with resources you might need to make informed choices regarding your food culture.
