European Commission To Ban Heirloom Seeds and Criminalize Plants & Seeds Not Registered With Government

The "Plant Reproductive Material Law" regulates all plants.

It contains restrictions on vegetables and woodland trees, as well as all other plants of any species.

It will be illegal to grow, reproduce, or trade any vegetable seed or tree that has not been been tested and approved by the government, more specifically the "EU Plant Variety Agency."

This agency will be responsible for making a list of approved plants and an annual fee must also be forwarded to the agency if growers would like to keep what they grow on the list.

The new law basically puts the government in charge of all plants and seeds in Europe, and prevents home gardeners from growing their own plants from non-regulated seeds.

If they did, they would now be considered criminals.
