We have signed the Council for Responsible Genetics' Safe Seeds 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 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 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.
