Zapatista Corn Available for Planting

These young people from the barrio of Kibera in Nairobi, Kenya, East Africa are growing Zapatista corn!

You too can offer sanctuary to GE-free Zapatista corn in your community. Sow the seeds of resistance and join the growing movement against transgenic contamination of Mayan corn in Chiapas, Mexico!
