Rally Round Or Roundup Herbicide on Organically Grown Land?

ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGE TO YOU




This Plant Your Dream Blog shares the plan to create a video documentation of a small piece of ground, now organically grown, that will soon be sprayed with Roundup Herbicide. I am taking on a 10 by 10 plot. I want to demonstrate that enough people Rallying Around and digging out roots of Arundo Donax The Giant Reed can prevent its regrowth without Round up Herbicide use. Help support this demonstration. Schedule a time to come a dig out a root between December 18-January 1 so we can show this can be done. CALL ME, 619.384.2631 TO SCHEDULE A TIME FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION. If you want to participate but do not want your face show, that is possible. If you cannot do this, but want to support another person doing it, contribute here and express your financial sponsorship.



ROD KRAUS AT THE HILLCREST FARMERS’ MARKET DECEMBER 18
PONDERS ARUNDO DONAX, CALLED BY SOME THE DEVIL WEED

He agreed that it is being out of touch with nature, that creates an alien relationship to this plant. “Woman, Man, Plant, Earth-We are all One!” is the essence of the Arundo Tribe Blessing Ceremony I am evolving for a Winter Solstice event this Wed, and Ascension 2012, December 31-January 1, 2012 at the World Beat Center.

ESSENCE OF THE ARUNDO TRIBE BLESSING CEREMONY

WHAT IS THE ARUNDO TRIBE BLESSING CEREMONY?

Woman, man, Plant, Earth, we are one!
The Arundo Tribe Blessing Ceremony acknowledges this connection.


Can you see a pair of chopsticks here? Tear away the leaves, and you will have a thin stem of Arundo Donax (The Giant Reed) that can be made in a pair of Chopsticks to export to China. Please help the Chinese! They have used up their forests making chopsticks and our now relying on a company in Georgia USA, Made in the USA Chopsticks to save them from an extreme emergency, no more chopsticks!!!! Oh My God! Can you imagine Chine without chopsticks? Watch as others rise up in America, through growing Around Donax in well managed pots to help our brothers and sisters of China during this time of great duress, no more chopsticks!!!!! Will you Rally Round to help China? Read some of the deeper implications here: Rally Round or Roundup Herbicide!

I ENVISION OF A CHRISTMAS, CHANUKAH, KWANNZAA MIRACLE AS OUR WORLD HEADS INTO 2012

I envision this early morning of 2011, 15 days before the most incredible time of receiving Shift in our lives, 2012, a Christmas Chanukah, and Kwanzaa Miracle. It is a Miracle that sets a tone of interfaith cooperation. It is a miracle that acknowledges that men and woman, who have been beaten down by chemicals, and herbicides, and pesticides as a shortcut way to “do better living through Chemistry” decide rather to Rally Round and say not here.

THE AROSA CANYON RIM IS THE PLACE WHERE ROUNDUP HERBICIDE USE WILL COME TO AN END IN OUR MODERN WORLD

Everybody is good for something. I am Your Enchanted Gardener. Ask me to dig up a root of Arundo Donax, called the Devil Weed, and I would have a difficult time doing this, especially by hand. It would likely take me about 45 minutes to dig up such a mighty root; and yet, I will do this, in the next 15 days, to demonstrate on our Arundo Donax Management Test Site, that truly this plant that I respect and admire, can be killed mechanicially and not with Roundup Herbicide.

THE DIGGING UP OF THIS ROOT WILL BE RECORDED IN MY NEW FILM CALLED THE ARUNDO TRIBE

There is a story in the Holy Books about a Prophet named Isaac, I believe that was his name, who so believed in God and doing the right thing, that he took his son out and was ready to kill him. Finally the Angels interceded and told him not to slit the throat of his own son. I love Arundo Donax, called The Giant Reed, but in the name of preventing what I consider the harming of precious land never exposed to soil killing Roundup Herbicide, I will Rally Round with others to prove that one small little patch maybe 10 x 10 can demonstrate that truly people of the earth will come together to show that together I a caring gesture, we can outwit the a product that aims to short circuit human life itself on our earth.

ROUNDUP HERBICIDE: IS IT SAFE OR DANGEROUS?

If you watch some of these videos made in England about Roundup Herbicide, the most popular chemical way to kill weeds in the world, you will see how lovely Roundup Herbicide is. It can save you countless hours of drugery and get out those ugly looking weeds. There are now Park and Rec departments all over the So Cal where I live who buy Monsanto Corp favorite herbicide and spray it in Cracks to kill weeds. The same Cities go from door to door in neighborhoods spraying. They did that last week in a small little town in unincorporated town in Orange Country, CA, where one woman was horrified. As a result she went inside here house and did not come out for 72 hours, she was so fearful of having her health damaged. When she called her city and the local homeowners association, both insured her that whatever was being sprayed chemically was non-toxic.

To me she ranted on the phone! “Non-Toxic!” Whatever they were spraying is meant to kill!”
How can something that kills plants from the root up not have some harm on human beings? That is the question, I would like my friends at Monsanto Corp to answer.

I HAVE FRIENDS AT MONSANTO CORP

There are people I admire who work for Monsanto Corps. I have prayed for Monsanto Corps. I grew up loving Disneyland. One of my favorite exhibits when I was a kid was in Tommorrowland. It showed a house of the future where life was so easy. I was fascinated. Monsanto was the sponsor, just a Monsanto has brought us Roundup Herbicide. How can we trust what Monsanto says? This is a question, not an indictment. I want to know. I sincerely want to know if Roundup herbicide is safe. Please show me the tests. Please tell me why thousands of small farmers in India consider it their favorite choice of suicide potion when their crops fail. These farmers bought into the Green Revolution of that said life would be better through chemistry. You can see their funerals in this PBS film. Thousands upon thousands of them are now dead, and it is because their entire life was ruined when they believed their government who said GMO and its Roundup Herbicide was a good idea to do.

WHAT ARE WE BUYING INTO: PLEASE SHOW ME THE TRUTH ABOUT ROUNDUP HERBICIDE

There are already more than five people in our world who believe from what they have read that Roundup Herbicide is dangerous. They have signed a petition to Outlaw Roundup Herbicide. Of course, we are just a little minority of all the people who believe that Roundup Herbicide is a good labor saving thing.

ENTER ARUNDO DONAX, THE GIANT REED

Enter a sacrificial lamb, called Arundo Donax. In this Rock Your Soul Opera, Arundo Donax, The Giant Reed that was growing on the Arosa Canyon Rim, planted here decades ago by who knows who, is willing to have itself killed out here to prove a point. What is the point? The point is: Rally Round or Roundup herbicide! Will good neighbors hear the cry? Will San Diegans come together to show that we do not need Roundup on a little bit of earth here that is destined to be killed with Roundup?

What can we learn through coming together and using our hands to dig out Arundo Donax Roots? What is to be gained by doing something here the way that has been done–organically, since the beginning of time?

WATCH THE RESULTS

They will be on Youtube. This land may end up being Roundup herbicided. If it does, that is O.K. and a story will be told.

OUTLAWING ROUNDUP HERBICIDE

This new petition campaign was inspired by my Arosa Canyon Rim neighbor Dave Cammall who underscored for me on November 19, my 64th birthday that until Roundup Herbicide is outlawed, many people who imagine it is safe to use. A Hazarous Waste manager for the City of San Diego, Dave pointed out that Agent Orange was once legal, but now it is outlawed. May the same future for Roundup Herbicide be soon forthcoming through our actions here that begin on the Arosa Canyon rim.

SIGN THE PETITION NOW TO OUTLAW ROUNDUP HERBICIDE USE

WEED CONTROL PANACEA OR HUMAN RIGHT VIOLATOR?

Please express your opinion by signing the petition to outlaw Roundup Herbicide. Do you believe Roundup Herbicide is safe? Most people do. Take a look at The World According to Monsanto and this story about The Big Six chemical companies being found guilty of Human Rights Violations on Mother Earth Earth Heals Blog by Liora Leah.

JOIN THE DISCUSSION



The Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Food on Facebook was inspired by a meeting with Dr. Robert Fraley, one of the the lead contributors to Roundup Ready Technology, to help ease the tension between GMO and Organic Lovers. I see this tension being eased through putting the facts on the table and then allowing more and more person to get in the discussion about the benefits or harm of Roundup, or both. Please express your opinion on why you value Roundup Herbicide or feel it needs to be outlawed.

DID YOU KNOW, ACCORDING TO SCOTT MIRACLE GRO?

Take a look at the Scott Miracle Gro Site says Roundup Herbicide is safe after it dries.

Scott Miracle Gro Says:

You can plant all ornamentals, trees and shrubs the NEXT day and plant all fruits, vegetables, herbs and lawn grasses after 3 days of applying
the following products:
• Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer Ready-To-Use Plus • Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer Concentrate Plus • Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer Super Concentrate

DID YOU KNOW ACCORDING TO THE PESTICIDE ACTION NETWORK?

Glyphosate, RoundUp’s active ingredient, was found in every stream studied and in most air samples taken in a recent study conducted by government researchers in Mississippi and Iowa. And it’s undoubtedly in other states too. Across the U.S. it’s used commonly on corn, soybeans, cotton and rice, to the tune of 180-185 millions of pounds in 2007 — more tonnage than any other pesticide.

And that’s only use on farms. RoundUp is also the second most commonly used pesticide in homes and gardens across the country.

Scientists bust Monsanto’s safety myth
Glyphosate has recently been linked to birth defects,* and at extremely low levels it can kill placental cells and disrupt the human hormone system. Yet regulatory authorities still only formally recognize its potential to contaminate groundwater.

Glyphosate has recently been linked to birth defects,* and at extremely low levels it can kill placental cells and disrupt the human hormone system. Yet regulatory authorities still only formally recognize its potential to contaminate groundwater.

SafeLawns recently pointed out that while glyphosate is not listed by EPA as highly toxic when inhaled, it may become highly toxic in the human digestive system where it is metabolized to N-nitrosoglyphosate — a chemical known to cause tumors.

It can be expensive to test for pesticides in air and water, which is why we haven’t before seen the kind of data recently collected in Mississipi and Iowa. Independent testing for health effects can also be costly. Yet these are precisely the kind of data that should be required for continued use of any product. Are we exposed? Does it harm us? How does it affect children’s health and development?

REPORT OF PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH ROUND UP REPORTED TO HARM

That the use of “Round-up” and various other chemical concoctions should be made illegal is a no-brainer! I was a resident in a so-called town of envionmentally concerned community of Sedona Arizona. There are people who are getting sick here and not knowing why, only to wake up one day and see a large truck spraying herbicides up and down 89A. The spray was flowing a good 8 feet in the air at 5:30 in the morning, just before sun up when people were still asleep. Encountering the fellow driving the tanker was a simple issue as I was caught right in his spray, and today I have the “cold-flulike’ symptoms-coughing weezing and chest congestion because of the exposure. To put it mildly they should stop! But even writing the EPA Environmental Protection Agency (National and Local) has caused little if any impact! I had a friend that dropped in the hospital the same day with the same conditions only a shut-down of his breathing causing him to go to the emergency room- another who complained of feeling parched and dry, coughing and weezing (what kind of ‘cold’?) No-Same day, same issue- An action group has complained for years about the rampant use of Round-up out here to the city but without any good response. They still spray and spray! Another issue is the dry cleaning of the roads here with open bushes which put a 30 foot wall of dust in the air (which includes all the road debris- one can guess whats in that!) It is misery to many here but the city, despite many-many calls does nothing for Sedona (rather putting it aside as “those crazy environmentalists’. Now the conditions should be checked! Round-Up and other brain toxins are insidious chemicals to be putting in our atmosphere, but getting people to listen is another story altogether!
