What is the Safe Seed Pledge ?

The Safe Seed Pledge is a program that was founded by the Council for Responsible Genetics . The pledge reads as follows:

“Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative.

We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.

The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing are necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Furthermore, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.”

A lot of seed companies may claim to have signed the Safe Seed Pledge – but few actually do!  To verify our status with the Council for Responsible Genetics, click this link then scroll down to the State of Florida. There you will find our company proudly displayed!
