Wondering if any one has already done the research. I don't think I've ever seen it marked on packages that it includes ingredients from Monsanto which would be ideal. So how can I avoid buying this crap?

ugh Watching this I want to know too.

I try to do as much from farm to table as I can these days and I plant as many veggies and fruits as I can in pots on my patio

But local organic foods. Some foods in the store will say no GMO. Stick to the natural sections.

Monsanto have their dirty little fingers in everything.

Try to use non-GMO foods as well as local. Your best bet is to go into an organic store because they're more likely to carry non-GMO and such.

Yeh, we just bought a house and I am hoping to do some gardening, but I have a black thumb :( I'm hoping if I can put the stuff on a watering timer I'll have better luck. I am REALLY bad about doing something on a regular basis (like watering plants or taking medicine) but I know it'll take awhile before that is fruitful (lol) so hoping to avoid them best I can until then. No GMO got it! Thank you :)

It's virtually impossible to avoid MOnsanto. They have thier hands in every cookie jar

All you can do is your best. Buy local. Buy organic. Know where your food comes from. Eat fresh.

If possible, grow small things (even just herbs) like tomatoes, lettuce and other low-maintenace fruits/veggies/herbs. Double-check labels of any seeds you buy if you go that route.
Along with what the other ladies said.
