Oregon Tilth Organic Certification
All of our seed growers are certified organic, as are our cleaning facility and system, our storage, packing and shipping facility. Our certificate number is OR-OTCO-CO-91-00050. If needed, this certificate is available to print at http://www.seedsofchange.com/SOC_OGCERT.pdf.
All of our seed is certified organic and therefore certified to be free from GMO contamination. We take great care to produce seed crops in areas with as much isolation as possible from potential GMO (commercial) crops. In case where there could be any pollen migration (e.g., in corn or chards) DNA testing is conducted to ensure absence of any GMO material in any of our seed crops.
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 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, to genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems, and ultimately to healthy people and communities.” —Seeds of Change (from the Council for Responsible Genetics, www.gene-watch.org)
