You Can Offer Sanctuary to Zapatista Corn!
Sow these seeds of resistance and join the growing movement against transgenic contamination of Mayan corn in Chiapas, Mexico! Or send packages of corn to all your friends as holiday gifts.
By planting Zapatista corn, you become a part of a global effort to preserve a vital genetic heritage that has evolved over thousands of years. Great for making tortillas! You can plant this powerful Zapatista seed corn in your community, farm, home, school, or family gardens. We urge you to invite your friends and family to collectively prepare the soil, to come together to plant the Zapatista seed, and perhaps you all can organize a larger sanctuary harvest party in the fall to eat great corn and celebrate our resistances! Click Mother Seeds in Resistance Project to learn more about Zapatista efforts to stop GMO's.
These seeds have been donated by Zapatista farmers who hope and pray that people of conscience around the world will provide respectful sanctuary for this living part of their cultural heritage.
Order Your Zapatista seed corn today! Each package contains approximately 60 powerful seeds – germination rates are very high and detailed growing instructions are printed on each seed package. You’ll need about 180 square feet of land per package of seed.
All seed corn provided by Mother Seeds in Resistance is FREE. A suggested donation of $7 to $13(or more) per package of seed will be accepted to purchase GMO field testing kits ($7 each) to continue Zapatista efforts to make Chiapas a GE/GMO Free Zone.
If you want the seed corn package sent as a gift, please tell us the name of the person receiving the corn and their address.
