Hello,
I am pretty new here. I am in the Lowndes/Echols county Georgia area.. I work in the agriculture field and have access to heirloom/non gmo seeds and am thinking about packaging and selling them.. Would anyone be interested in buying them if I were to do so?

Thanks,
I have looked at the site.. I believe I can beat their prices by quite a bit.. I will have to order quite a bit in bulk to do so but I can do it. I need to see how much interest there is in it so I'm not stuck with a whole butt load of seads. So whoever is interested, let me know and I will get this rolling..

I will be posting a price list soon. These will also be seeds from the United States.. A very large portion of open pollinated/non GMO/heirloom seeds are from overseas. China is a big supplier unfortunately.

i have copied and pasted this from our sportbike site fom nomad-

Do you know that GMO modified grains are modified to withstand weed killers like roundup so they can maximize production?

Guess where the chemicals of roundup endup?

The Lies You're Told about Genetically Engineered Foods

The featured article summarizes the evidence presented, which shows that genetically engineered (GE) crops:•Are laboratory-made, using technology that is totally different from natural breeding methods, and pose different risks from non-GE crops
•Can be toxic, allergenic or less nutritious than their natural counterparts
•Are not adequately regulated to ensure safety
•Do not increase yield potential
•Do not reduce pesticide use but increase it
•Create serious problems for farmers, including herbicide-tolerant "superweeds", compromised soil quality, and increased disease susceptibility in crops
•Have mixed economic effects
•Harm soil quality, disrupt ecosystems, and reduce biodiversity
•Do not offer effective solutions to climate change
•Are as energy-hungry as any other chemically-farmed crops
•Cannot solve the problem of world hunger but distract from its real causes - poverty, lack of access to food and, increasingly, lack of access to land to grow it on

Always interested in "natural" garden seeds. But will not commit until I see your lists. Keep in mind, that a lot of things won't grow in all places of this country. How about sending o'bummer some brain seeds ? LOL
