March Against Monsanto: Good turnout for the Tampa march, one volunteer said they heard the last official count was 504. The police were awesome, I thanked a few, in particular one who was clearly in charge of affairs. Good hand made signs, TONS of public support...peace signs, thumbs up, honks. Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein gave a brief but impassioned talk at the park just before the march I brought raw garden goodies to share once we got to shady Gaslight Park....the katuk leaves and thornless opuntia cactus pads were a real hit. I'd brought molokhiya and tamarillo seeds for a friend from Gulfport who thought he might make it but no. Nice to see so many folks care about REAL food, safe food, an intact environment and of course met a few gardeners as we walked.
