Joey of WisVeggieGardener asked me to talk about the FDA: Food Safety Modernization Act/ Monsanto Protection Act.
Most people are now aware about the Monsanto Protection Act and they feel the best way to beat this is to simply grow their own food at home. Little do they know the Government has ALREADY made it illegal back in 2011 with HR 2751 that will essentially make it illegal to Grow, Share, Trade or Sell home grown foods and will make all agriculture in USA go under Department of Homeland Security and Department of Defense. Someone with a backyard home garden could potentially have their PROPERTY SEIZED!! This goes back to Obama’s executive order for NDRP (National Defense Resource Preparedness) To take your resources when they want them, trampling on our 3rd Amendment.
We talk about FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, is it really illegal to garden in the United States?
