RE: [steiner] Steiner's Agricultural Course and biodynamics
- ******* If there's anything in this bill (written after the recent peanut-contamination episode that sickened and killed people here in the US) which would require organic farms to use chemical pesticides, I sure didn't see it.
The text of the bill is here:

Subject: [steiner] Steiner's Agricultural Course and biodynamics
Dear Friends of Organic,
I received this letter from our friend, Dr. Incao today. If the law he
refers to is passed, it seems to herald the end of the organic movement
in this country. Urgent action is required to prevent this. Please send
this letter on to everyone in your personal/profession al network that
cares about organic farming and urge them to take action towards their
local Congress representative.
By acting swiftly now, we hope that this assault on the organic movement
can still be stopped.
I am sending you this information about a bill that puts organic farming
in jeopardy. Please read about it and put in your word of protest.
US House and Senate are about (in a week and a half) to vote on bill
that will OUTLAW ORGANIC FARMING (bill HR 875). There is an enormous
rush to get this into law within the next 2 weeks before people realize
what is happening.
Main backer and lobbyist is (guess who) Monsanto – chemical and genetic
engineering giant corporation. This bill will require organic farms to
use specific fertilizers and poisonous insect sprays dictated by the
newly formed agency to "make sure there is no danger to the public food
supply". This will include backyard gardens that grow food only for a
family and not for sales.
If this passes then NO more heirloom clean seeds but only Monsanto
genetically altered seeds that are now showing up with unexpected
diseases in humans.
There is a video on the subject.

The name on this outrageous food plan is Food Safety Modernization Act
of 2009 (bill HR 875).
THIS IS REAL, FOLKS! PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL CONCERNED ON YOUR MAILING
LISTS & CALL YOUR SENATE REPRESENTETIVES TODAY! Get on that phone and
burn up the wires. Get anyone else you can to do the same thing. The
House and Senate WILL pass this if they are not massively threatened
with loss of their position.... They only fear your voice and your vote.
The best thing to do is go to www.house.gov/ writerep
<http://www.house. gov/writerep> <http://www.house. gov/writerep> all you
have to do is put in your zip and it will give you your congressperson
and how to get in touch with them. When you call their office someone
will answer the phone, just tell them (politely) that you are calling to
express your views on HR 875. Tell them your views, they'll take your
name and address and pass your comments along to the congressperson. The

is a list of the U.S. senators and their contact info.
