Where to find GMO-free seeds for your garden
- buy open-pollinated seeds from seed vendors who have taken the Safe Seed Pledge -- these vendors will proudly display the pledge within the pages of their catalog or website
- "borrow" seeds from the Seed Library of Los Angeles (SLOLA) at any of their meetings
- local seed swaps (calendar coming soon)
- swap with the members of Seed Savers Exchange, an international seed savers club
- get open-pollinated seeds that have been saved for several plant-generations from friends, family, neighbors
Hybrid seeds are not open-pollinated. Hybrid seeds will not reliably produce offspring that are like their parents -- this is why you can't successfully save seed from a supermarket tomato. Many seeds sold by chain stores (Home Depot, Wallmart, etc) are patented hybrids -- that's not Seed Freedom!
