    Drosera anglica for the sake of activism.

    Hello

    Up for giveaway are seed pods of fresh D. anglica. This is a temperate sundew and would be recommended only for those that can give it a solid Winter dormancy.

    Each giveaway portion consists of perhaps a dozen seed pods, all with varying amounts of seed in them. I do not know of the germination requirements of this species, or this seed. I would assume that it could be treated like any other temperate carnivorous plant.

    There will be four recipients of these portions. Inspired by thez_yo's thread, I turn to those of you on Terraforums that have done the most for a certain cause, however the cause I speak of is most certainly environmental activism.

    I want to know what you have done to support the restoration or the preservation of the environments, either in your community or abroad. Wetland habitats are preferred but any sort of activism is terrific.

    If you are interested in this seed, post your story. I will pick the four recipients.

    If you have done a giveaway to me, whether recently or in the past, feel free to notify me of your interest in these seeds. You will, of course, have top priority.

    Here are a couple pictures of plants that are similar to the genetics you will receive.

    Ohmygod, youse so amazin for this! My heart sings seeing such wonderfully caring and inspiring people doing this...hopefully you guys start some sort of new trend :3

    I'm more on the animal-rights boat, as that's where my only brief bits of activism have been, but the environment is dear to me as well, so I'm always signing petitions and clicking to donate every chance I get.

    Not entering, but just sharing my story and saying how wonderful this is

    I guess it was just a lousy time-management issue.

    Oh well!

    I got arrested in 1991 or so during an Earth Day protest. The main point was a protest of NSP (Northern States Power) planning to store casks of radioactive waste onto the Prarie Island Indian Reservation near the headwaters of the Mississippi River. Cask life was supposed to be 17 years but many were already leaking BEFORE the move according to local news reports. As you know the Mississippi flows all the way from Northern MN down through the Mississippi Delta and out into to the gulf of Mexico.

    We were at the end of our march and infront of NSP when I felt a knight stick come up under my throat as I was lifted offa the ground and flung backwards into the street and stomped on by the pigs. They maced me a bunch of times in the middle of the street, one was standing on my back with both feet.

    When they put me in the car different cops took turns getting in the front, opening the little window and berating me as a "commie-fag-junkie" and then macing me repeatedly, like they were trying to choke me out back there or something with all the gas.

    Then they finally got in one last time, complained about how much mace was in the air (duh) and paraded me around town to show all the traffic cops on duty. I overheard them say "we have to transfer him to a new vehicle or we'll get charged with kidnapping" so they met up with a Police truck / paddy wagon somewhere downtown and chained me up loosely to the seat and then drove all crazy for a while starting and stopping real fast so I'd fly around and wrench my wrists and elbows out of joint. I was picked up during 4 pm rush hour but did not get the 6 blocks to the police station until after dark due to the cops shenanigans driving me around town.

    When I was being booked the black juvenile officer who was taking my info told me about the time he himself got being beat up by Minneapolis cops when he didn't have his ID on him and was caught speeding. Minneapolis' finest!

    And they did go ahead with dumping the waste on the river anyway so... sorry guys - I tried.


    EDIT:
    I forgot to say, I can't grow stuff that has to go dormant so don't put me in the hat for these seeds, I just thought I'd share my story.

    I would love to be in the list.

    I have not done anything directly to help with environmental. I maintain my membership with the AOS and they do a lot for conservation. I have also been a member of the nature conservatory. I grow plants that are endangered to make sure the plants are not totally lost. That is all I have.

    These dews would go great outside with my Sarrs and VFT. they would receive the dormancy they require and be grown in a bog environment.

    Thank you for the offer.

    I would like to grow your seeds please. I am trying to replace a CP collection that I use for teaching (summer power failure cooked my plants). I have been a lurker on this forum for years but only recently joined to take advantage of the seed opportunities.
    I prefer to remain anonymous to prioritize my time, so please don't use what comes next as a guessing game!
    I have devoted my entire life to conservation and though I don't like to toot my own horn, I am proud to have been personally responsible for the conservation of over a million acres of precious ecosystems in the US alone. Though I have scaled back my conservation work for health reasons (in part because of too many years in the Amazon), I am still an advisor to governments on improving conservation policy. In the last year, I have returned to teaching conservation biology as a university professor and am also the Executive Director of a wilderness research preserve. My most significant wetlands conservation effort is finally getting started. I am one of the principle science advisors on what will be the largest wetlands restoration project ever undertaken (yes, even bigger than the Everglades project!).
