Genetically modified seeds often come with 'bag tags'-- licenses that cover patented genes and specify that seed cannot be saved and may only be used for food or animal feed. If +Seed Savers Exchange
were to add a 'bag tag' to our #seed
packets, it would look something like this."By planting the seeds in this packet you have become a steward of our food heritage, a link in a chain that goes back thousands of years. Use this seed to grow food, but please save the seeds, share them with others, and replant them again in your garden to allow the seeds to adapt to your local growing conditions."
