Safe Seed Pledge

Have you heard of the Safe Seed Pledge? David's Garden Seeds wants our loyal customers to know that we have taken this important Pledge. This pledge was created in 1999 by High Mowing Organic Seeds and nine other seed companies to take a stand against genetically engineered seeds.

Many scientists say GMOs are safe and are helpful to feed more people than ever before.  here are a lot of people who are concerned about genetically modified seeds also known as GMOs or genetically modified organisms, ruining the food chain. This is understandably scary. We want to eat healthy food to keep our bodies healthy. 

When we start eating food grown from genetically modified seeds, we now know that there are side effects such as cancer, birth defects, infertility, asthma, obesity, diabetes, and malnutrition. Some believe autism and ADHD may also be linked to eating food from GMOs. There are many reports that GMOs are polluting our bodies of water and killing off bees that pollinate our food. You can do a simple Google Search and find thousands of articles on the use of GMOs.

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine "calls for:

  • A moratorium on GM food, implementation of immediate long term safety testing and labeling of GM food.

  • Physicians to educate their patients, the medical community and the public to avoid GM foods.

  • Physicians to consider the role of GM foods in their patients' disease processes.

  • More independent long term scientific studies to begin gathering data to investigate the role of GM foods on human health."

God created the food chain, including plants with seeds. His way is best so we are going with the seeds he created, not genetically modified seeds. 

We do not want to sell any seeds that are genetically modified so we decided, along with many other seed companies, to take the pledge below to protect our seeds.

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 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."

Take the Safe Seed Pledge

We at David's Garden Seeds And Products took the Safe Seed Pledge on January 24, 2013. We provide seeds that are safe for growing food. We plant them, grow food and feed our family from our backyard garden. We would never sell anything that we would not grow and eat ourselves.
