Calaveras Ag Dept Says...Do Not Open, Plant or Dispose of Seed Packets from China. Drop them off in San Andreas

San Andreas, CA...Unsolicited seed packets from China and other parts of Asia have begun to arrive in Calaveras County. The Environmental Management Agency started receiving phone calls this afternoon. The California Department of Food and Agriculture recently became aware of the reports that seed packets are being shipped to home owners throughout the United States which now include Calaveras residents.





The Department of Food and Agriculture is instructing residents not to open, plant, or dispose of any unsolicited seed packets received. Calaveras residents are instructed to take all seed packets in a sealed bag or container to the Environmental Management Agency – Department of Agriculture/Weights and Measures located at:

      I think everyone should smoke them. We would all start talking Chinese without even have taking a course in Chinese.

        No joke about these seeds. China already sent us the pandemic killing over 100,000 US citizens. Do not open the bag!

If U.S. doesn't get even more aggressive with China, 2 decades from now Chinese will be the official language.

Oh, this is perfect. The Chinese perfectly understand that second and third generation Americans are lazy and will never take care of the land as their ancestors. Send invasive plants to America - perfect!

    No, and they won’t stay home or wear a mask if the government tells them to either.
