If you have already received notice of this, please excuse the cross-posting.
I recently learned that Rob Johnston of Johnny's Seeds is considering
selllng genetically modified seeds. The escape of these seeds into the
environment could have potentially devastating consequences. I urge you
to write to him immediately to express your feelings. I am BCCing this
to most everyone on my list (more than 100 people and list serves) and
recommend you do the same. I personally intend to boycott their company
until I hear of a change in policy. The Carolina Farm Stewardship
Association recently circulated a petition critical of Johnny's policy
at their recent conference and 106  farmers signed it, including Elliot
Coleman. You can email Johnny's: <>
or fax them: 1-800-437-4299
