OSU's Disservice of Master Gardeners

Thinking of changing how I blog today, too much doom and gloom. I can't save the world, no one can. All I can do is go out, garden without GMO's, without F1 Hybrids, without this new age chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.. the new age of chemical food growing is over, it just doesn't work.

I know students & teachers of OSU's Master Gardener program think it works. I got into a 5 minute discussion about how the program is not sustainable yesterday with someone who teaches for it. I doubt I changed their mind, but it did make me realize I can only do so much.

  1. I understand your frustration! We can really only do what we can, which includes leading by example as well as trying to speak with people who may be open to hearing what we have to say. I have a lot of hope right now because I see so many blogs like yours where people are waking up to realize that living more in harmony with nature is better for humanity as well as for nature.

    Take heart that people ARE slowly waking up. We can only do what we can.
