Host Doug Stephan has big new from The National Hemp Association. Next, Ira Wallace and Doug discuss The Southern Exposure Seed Exchange  and the stranglehold that Monsanto has on farmers, when it comes to buying seed. Southern Exposure Seed Exchange offers more than 700 varieties of vegetableflowerherbgrain and cover crop seeds. They emphasize varieties that perform well in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, although gardeners and farmers over the country grow our seeds. They offer many unusual Southern heirlooms, including peanuts, southern peas, naturally colored cotton, collards, okra, roselle, turnip greens, corns for roasting and meal, and butterbeans. They DO NOT sell chemically treated seeds! Finally, Doug offers a variety of positive comments, taken from farmers at a recent farm show.
