One of our missions is to preserve, educate and build sources of non-GMO products. GMO products lack nutrients and increase food consumption. They contaminate gene pools and environments, while contributing to global warming. They actually work against their intended purpose of reducing hunger and poverty, improving nutrition and environmental sustainability. That is why we do not sell any GMO products and are committed to the safe seed pledge.
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.”
