Maize Diversity from Crop Trust

                         #CropsInColor: maize diversity from Crop Trust on Vimeo.

I'd like you to check out this beautiful video on the diversity of corn in Mexico. In light of the recent attempts by Monsanto to destroy diversity and bring transgenic corn into the Mexican market, threatening corn diversity and purity, I'd like to share this video and ask that you encourage street vendors, restaurants and trucks to use better tortillas.

Let's let them know we'll pay a few cents more for corn tortillas made nixtamalized corn masa, and we'll pay even more for heirloom corn varietals.

Corn sustains life and culture.

This is so smart, I'm going to start asking all my favorite places to carry the Non Gmo and heirloom corn products. I would pay a bit more, I always do anyway. I'll start at the Vallarta, since they finally stared carrying some organics. Thanks Bill.
