Son of a Farmer

“Everything is connected. That bond is what keeps this Planet dancing round in poetic choreography. That connection is what keeps us all alive. What we do to the Earth, we do to ourselves. If we are capable of destruction, we are most certainly capable of healing. ” – Eric Herm

Eric Herm, (organic farmer, author, activist and musician) translates modern day agriculture and life through various mediums and venues in his own unique West Texas manner. With plow, pen, guitar and sarcastic wit, Herm plunges forward into a world of tumbleweeds, sandstorms, droughts, GMOs, and rural existence.

The Art of Opposing GMOs

Here’s the thing about being against GMOs: We’re in the minority. Not because so many Americans think there is nothing wrong with genetically-modified crops and food, but simply because most Americans have no idea what they are. It is our job, those of us who do know, to continue to beat the drum on this issue. It’s not up to someone else. It’s up to each one of us.

So, get active. Get involved. This impacts everyone and everything! As long as we do nothing, say nothing, and accept whatever sadistic legislation is passed in favor, nothing will change. We cannot convince ourselves we are helpless, that this is too big for us to fight. On the contrary, we must be bigger than the challenge. Everyone loves a good underdog.
