The best course of action conscious consumers can take to fight GMO's is to grow their own food. Thanks to popular urban aquaponics models, organic food can be grown sustainably and in areas where space and water are limited. Regardless of where you live or what method you choose to grow food, it all begins the same way…with a seed! In The Complete Guide to Saving Seeds by Robert Gough and Cheryl Moore-Gough, you will find the largest and most comprehensive resource available about seed saving. The book contains a myriad of priceless information that the educated and conscious gardener should know including: the botanical nomenclature, isolation requirements, seed collection process, germination information, information about invasives, which plants you cannot harvest seeds from, overwintering instructions, how to transplant and so much more! Cheryl Moore-Gough holds an M.S. in Plant Sciences from Montana State University, where she is now an adjunct assistant professor in horticulture. Cheryl has taught and coordinated the Montana Master Gardener program and has published numerous works alone and with her husband, Dr. Robert Gough, including five gardening books. She has written for Montana Magazine, Fine Gardening, American Nurseryman, and Zone 4 Magazine, and she hosts “Northern Gardening Tips,” which is broadcast by radio stations throughout Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota on the Northern News Network. She has been gardening and saving seeds in Montana for 30 years.
