Apparently I have not made this clear enough in the past .... I couldn't find a dedicated thread, so I'm starting this one.

There is a list of reasons I created these forums. One of the reasons is that I was tired of participitating in other horticultural forums and having to defend my choices over and over. The attacks were nasty and psychotic. I wanted a place where all of the people could talk about how to go about doing stuff that is WAY beyond the discussions about GMO stuff or any kind of pesticide. I don't even want to see the justification for organic. In fact, I prefer to see the discussion of why permaculture techniques are superior to organic.

I hope this is clear.

I just want to remind everyone that discussion of GMOs and pesticides is confined to The Cider Press and only by those who have earned enough apples, so we don't have to spend too much time moderating.

What is the Cider Press?

I'm still trying to figure out what "organic" means.

Oh, I know they have 5 digit SKU codes at the grocery store and sell for twice as much, and then there is this recent study about the level of anti-oxidants in organic veggies, but I think I would still prefer the "weeds" out of my garden than the organic stuff that is trucked in from who knows where. For me, permaculture is better than 'organic' because it is local.

Thanks Paul: For making a safe site where we don't have to rehash the GMO/pesticides thing over and over and over again!!!

Ha!
My first thought was, " Ok, who didn't get the memo, and has this thread been closed already?"
