I hope this is the right subfora for this. If not, please feel free to move it or tell me and I will take it down and re-post in the appropriate location.

Wondering if y'all have heard about the Experimental Farm Network. It's an experiment in decentralized, collaborative plant breeding and agricultural research. Open to anyone who has a patch of dirt and wants to participate, from the rank novice gardener to the uber-experienced breeder. This is completely my opinion and I think THIS is how we beat the Monsantos and Syngentas of the world. Peer-to-peer > centralized solutions every time.

Looks intersting, but the site wouldn't load on my computer. Can you tel us a bit about it?

The facebook page has some news about GMO's, and a brief description. Can you say more about what the participants in the farm network do or what the network provides?
I like that it's open to all different levels of experience. Sort of like this forum.
 
The human mind is a dangerous plaything. This tiny ad is pretty safe:
