First of all, we’re talking about a generation of people who had been inoculated to resilience by nearly twelve years of the worst economic crisis Americans have ever known — the Great Depression. Even before the original Victory Garden movement took off, small garden plots were common throughout the Depression era as a means to provide sustenance. Essentially, America was a nation of savers. When the Victory Garden became the must-have of every flag-waving citizen, anyone who didn’t have seeds saved could ask her neighbor. Or the family down the street. Or the fellow with the small farm on the outskirts of town. Someone would have seeds and be glad to share or trade.

Because when I say these companies co-opted the power of billions of ordinary people, I’m talking about you and me. Ordinary people who had grandparents or great-grandparents who grew a good portion of their own food are now somehow convinced that growing food is “a lot of work” or “too expensive.”

Where did all the seeds go?

Many so-called “miracle seeds” produce plants that produce sterile seed or seeds that produce inferior or not-true-to-type plants. For the farmer, they are dead ends. Now the farmer has no choice but to buy more, year after year, to maintain production. The other insidiously bold move Big Pharma made — which is still being contested in multi-million dollar lawsuits — was to obtain patents, rights of intellectual property, for their engineered seeds. Meaning that any farmer who does save seed to re-plant is in violation of the law. Even more malevolent are the patent-holding companies’ claims that any farmers using unpatented seed who “allows” pollen or seed from their farms to “contaminate” crops grown from patented seed on nearby farms is responsible for “destruction of property,” and can be held liable for damages.

Vavilov’s counsel fell on the deaf ears of Josef Stalin. Stalin wanted fast-growing uniform crops. He had his Five Year Plan and he would only entertain what fit into the Plan, never mind if it actually worked. Stalin had Vavilov imprisoned and listened instead to another scientist named Lynesko, whose now debunked theories conveniently fit with Stalin’s Plan. In a repeat historical episode from the Little Ice Age, an estimated thirty million people died of starvation and malnutrition during Stalin’s regime as the vast monoculture grain plantations he sanctioned failed year after year.

A Miracle of Propaganda

A seasoned greenskeeper herself, Kristina goes on to add why the sudden seed shortage was a non-issue for her:

Sueno seeds

Sueno, also known as “Sueño” and “Dream,” is a hybrid marijuana strain made by crossing Blue Dream with Sour Diesel. This strain, also called "Dream," produces long-lasting effects that stomp out stress and bring about blissful thoughts. You can expect Sueno to make you feel happy, weightless, and unfocused. This strain is ideal for afternoon use and for activities like a dreamy walk through the woods. Sueno features sweet flavors like berry mixed with spicy diesel notes. Medical marijuana patients choose this strain to help relieve symptoms associated with cramps, muscle spasms, and fatigue. According to growers, Sueno flowers into small, round buds with light green foliage with hints of blue. This strain has recently soared in popularity among dispensaries in Colorado. If you've smoked, dabbed or consumed Sueno before, tell us about your experience by leaving a strain review.

According to Gould, the UCSB Sustainability Program has been instrumental in raising campus and community awareness, and program coordinator Katie Maynard will be providing volunteers for the Oct. 16 cleanup day.

The Isla Vista Peace Course, a professional disc golf association, has two holes on orchard grounds, and flying disc sports have caused damage to some of the trees’ trunks.

The Orchard suffered through neglect, drought and disc golf assault before the decision was made to restore it. The project will aid the existing trees as well as plant 30 more. Jenny Luo / Daily Nexus

Gould emphasized the main goals of the restoration effort: to put in drip irrigation and to plant 30 new trees while saving the eight healthy trees that are already on the orchard grounds.

Currently, there are mulberry, citrus, apple and guava trees on the grounds of the orchard, and the project will plant more of those trees and other native species.

The volunteers will be doing light trimming of the existing trees and will help build wells around those trees so that they don’t retain water while they are being watered.

According to Rodney Gould, Isla Vista Recreation & Parks District (IVRPD) general manager, the group has been mulling over the project for the past three years, as community voices clamored for restoration of the orchard each year.

Afterward, the Public Works Department contacted Gould and inquired whether they could plant trees in other I.V. parks as mitigation for the removed trees.

The feat was delayed due to insufficient funds, Gould said, and residents redirected their efforts to other community projects following the May 2014 Isla Vista shooting.
