Seeds for Generations – A Non-GMO Seed Company
As Genetically Modified Organisms continue being added to our food supply, we’re concerned about the long-term impacts of GMOs, especially as they pertains to our health. As genetic modification continues increasing, we’re especially concerned as to how GMOs will impact our seed supply and the God-given variety that naturally present in heirloom seeds.
Currently, all of our seeds are heirloom varieties and none are Genetically Modified. (The one crop that can be tricky is corn, since it is wind pollinated and can be contaminated by GE corn in the vicinity. However, all of our corn is sourced from sources that are non-GMO and certified organic.)
Seeds for Generations is fully committed to providing only non-GMO seeds to our customers, and that’s why Seeds for Generations has taken the Safe Seed Pledge! You can rest assured that we’re a non-GMO seed company.
The Safe Seed Pledge
“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, sell or trade 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 is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.”
