    Genetically engineered seeds/food is wreaking havoc in the worlds food supply. PLEASE STOP this insanity. It’s time now to make this practice illegal. Help save the world. Read about Monsanto at wikipedia. Read about Indian farmers killing themselves because they have been lied to by Monsanto. Monsanto wants to control the world’s food supply. You just think the economy and terrorists are a threat. Just wait till you can’t get food because Monsanto controls the world. Now that’s a problem.

    Dear Ms.Hambelton,
    I am about to retire and would like more information on this project. I want to start a small selfsustaining farm that can raise a specialty crop for cash and food and lifestyle for me. Any information would be appreciated.
