I have visited both DuPont and Monsanto chemical plants. Although modern scientific innovations have in some ways improved life for many people, I don't want to be limited to buying seeds from the same companies who created Agent Orange and fueled the gas chambers of the nazis. Besides, the increasing prices and the lack of variety of both seeds and plants in the local stores are uninspiring. I suspect that they see the trend of more people growing their own vegetables as a potential for profits. They may be disappointed to learn that many of these people aren't interested in the hybrid seeds and plants that they offer.

I agree that the best thing that informed gardeners can do is to buy seeds from independent companies like seed savers and also to save, share and trade seeds from our own gardens.
