Tuesday morning kicked off with a bang as the Jr. High students and I talked GMO. They were surprised to learn that Hawaii is a major GM seed-testing-ground, where corporations do not have to disclose their presence to neighbors or other members of the public. It was mind-blowing to these bright-eyed youth that Terminator Seeds exist - seeds mutated to bear fruit that can not be replanted. Terminator seeds sever ancient ties of growers saving seed to continue crop cycles with unnaturally bloated, one-yeild harvests marketed to the poorest of countries. "Why would they do that?" asked one doe-eyed girl. Another answered, "For money." "Well, that's not a good enough reason," she replied in the breath before class ended.
