Project Seed LLC Helps Local Farmers:

This spring, there will be a sale to provide area farmers with low-cost, high-quality seed.  There will be alfalfa, and clover ready for sale and non-GMO seed can be ordered.  Comparable yields make this seed an attractive alternative.  The Diocese of La Crosse also offers financial assistance to those in need, so no one is turned away. Donations to help support Project Seed are welcome and can be sent to the Diocese of La Crosse.

Check out the 2020 Project Seed Brochure for information on how you can help!

Biotechnology: Threat or Hope?

There is much justifiable concern on the part of many regarding the usage of biotechnology in particular that of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). The concern is two-fold:

  1. Is the engineering one of cooperation with God or manipulation of nature?
  2. Does the purchase and usage of GMO seed constitute cooperation with an unfair monopoly?

While the dialogue and debate of the above two questions continue, the Diocesan Rural Life Committee has decided to continue to offer non-GMO seed corn for Project Seed.
